Subject Re: Sharepoint path metadata

Close enough.

Regex: the regular expression, which is matched against the document
identifier.  (Try "(*.)" for the whole thing)
Replacement: Instructtions for how to convert the matching groups into
a string to use as a metadata value. (Try $(1) for the entire,
unaltered, first group)
