I Found it out at the end! Thanks anyway.

Here the code to find out for someone that is interested:

	$handle = fopen ($filename, "r");
	while (!feof ($handle)) {
		$buffer = fgets($handle, 1024);
		echo ("<hr><p>".$buffer."<>");
		//.....................Author.................Year.................Title DE or EN.............EN Title..............................Source.....issue...........pages......Press
		$match=preg_match ("/^([\wÜÖäüßéñóíá,.-\s]*)\(([\d]{4})\)*:\s([\)\(ÜÖäüßéñóíá,.:&?!-\w\s]*)\[([\)\(ÜÖäüßéñóíá,.:&?!-é\w\s]*)\]\s-\s([\s\w]*)\s([\(\/\)\d]*),\s([\d-]*).\s([\w]*)/", $buffer, $regs);
		if ($match){
			echo ("<p>Matched till now in:  $line <br>------------------------> <i>".$regs[0]."</i>");
			echo ("<table border=\"2\"><tr><td>Author:</td><td><i>".$regs[1]."</i></td></tr>");
			echo ("<tr><td>Year:</td><td><i>".$regs[2]."</i></td></tr>");
			echo ("<tr><td>Title EN or DE:</td><td><i>".$regs[3]."</i></td></tr>");
			echo ("<tr><td>Title EN:</td><td><i>".$regs[4]."</i></td></tr>");
			echo ("<tr><td>Source:</td><td><i>".$regs[5]."</i></td></tr>");
			echo ("<tr><td>Issue:</td><td><i>".$regs[6]."</i></td></tr>");
			echo ("<tr><td>Pages:</td><td><i>".$regs[7]."</i></td></tr>");
			echo ("<tr><td>Press City:</td><td><i>".$regs[8]."</i></td></tr></table>");
			echo "<div style=\"color:red\">String did not match!</div></p>";
	fclose ($handle);

Cool he! ;-) I'm starting to like regular expressions. So now I can
happily import 1000 new rows without any problem.
