Which data source are you using for the update? I should probably adjust it
so that parentheses are removed when doing a search.

No, Tellico doesn't currently have a Find/Replace functionality. That's
probably something I should look at adding eventually. If you just do it
manually, you could add a filter for (The) to show you the entries you have
to edit. Sorry I can't suggest anything better!
