Parsing filename from insert and setting corresponding fields

Hi all. This is pretty simple to understand. I have a filename to insert into the container that will have a naming convention such as:

 

"name1_type_date" ...each value between the underscores has a corresponding text field on the layout

 

When I insert the file into the container, I would like to parse out each of the values separated by "_" and set them in the 3 corresponding fields on the layout.

 

For example:

 

Uploaded filename is: sam_contract_9_22_2017

Set name1: Sam

Set type: contract

Set date: 9/22/2017

 

I already have it modifying the filename on the insert to build the name from these fields when populated, but I also want it to work the reverse way so that someone can quickly get everything entered just from uploading the files.
