Hi *,

I'm trying to rename author's folders into the form
"lastname, firstname (initial.)*"

I'm using the following lines (the two line approach takes care of the occasional "jr." appendix):

1s:
Code:
(?=^[^,]+$)(?!.*[jJ][rR]\.?$)^((\w+\.?[ ]+)+)(\w+)$

1r:
Code:
\3, \1


2s:
Code:
(?=^[^,]+$)(?=.*[jJ][rR]\.?$)^((\w+\.?[ ]+)+)(\w+)[ ]*[jJ][rR]\.?$

2r:
Code:
\3, \1 jr.


3s:
Code:
 
# two blanks
3r:
Code:
 
# one blank

4s:
Code:
 (\w)\s*$
# one leading blank
4r:
Code:
 \1.
# one leading blank

I'm encountering the following problem: A folder named "Jean M. Auel" is correctly shown in the preview line as "Auel, Jean M.", but the scan result shows no trailing dot. My 4th s/r line was specifically designed to remidy this issue by adding a trailing dot to trailing initials, without success.

Can anyone help me?

Hi,

There is a minor bug with the previewer. It should not be showing the trailing period because windows does not allow file or folder names to end in a period.

Peter.
