Regex to fix year\\year and year\\year-month-day

Hello:
A lot of my files have the year set as one of the following:
1977\\1977
2009\\2009-10-12

All I want is to have just the year, so the two examples here would have 1977 and 2009 as the year. I have tried all sorts of regex formulaes, and they either do nothing or clear everything.
thanks.

Hi and welcome :slight_smile:

It looks like the files have multiple year fields (you can inspect them individually via the extended tag dialog at Alt + T).

The easiest way to remove them is to use an action "Remove duplicate fields". See this topic for more on actions (in case it's needed).

Worked like a charm. Thank you very much Florian!
