Hi,

you have to find out a common rule to detect the year.... always behind the second hyphen? - always three signs plus ')' behind the year?



Until you report back, I try how I understood:

FROM:
Das Tribunal (KD125de-6.3-2002US4).mkv
TO:
Das Tribunal (2002).mkv

TRY:

RegEx(1)
Match: ^(.+) \(.+-(\d\d\d\d)...\)$
Repla: \1 (\2)







Please wait a few seconds then submit. Thank you.
Stefan
