I'm looking for syntax to do the following

original string
01 A Text String

desired replacement
01 - A Text String

I just need to insert a dash between the numeric and the alpha as shown.
There is the one occurrence of this pattern only in the string.

Thanks

"01 A Text String" -replace '(\d+)\s(.+)', '$1 - $2'

Open in new window

will search for arbitrary number of digits, followed by space, followed by arbitrary characters.
