XMP/IPTC Presets, Want camera file names in Title filed

Sorry to bug you folks for such a trivial problem but I have a situation where I really need the camera's default file names to appear in the "Title" field of the XMP/IPTC Information of my metadata.

The reason is I have started a system of uploading large numbers of unprocessed jpgs to one of my flickr pages for clients to preview photos so they can tell me which pictures they want prints of. So I want each picture on flickr to have a unique title. I've discovered that flickr gets the title name from the "Title" field of my xmp/iptc presets.

At some point in the past I must have messed with the XMP/IPTC Presets stuff under the "Embedded Info" tab of Nikon Transfer so now all my files have a title that I don't want. I figured out how to null that field out in Nikon Transfer but I can't figure out how to get it to populate with the camera's file name.

I hope I described the situation well enough and I hope someone can tell me what I need to do. I'm assuming it's something I need to change in Nikon Transfer.

I couldn't thank you enough if you were able to help me.
