Wildcard help required please :)

Postby SPARKY1000 » Thu Mar 12, 2020 6:37 pm

Hello,

I cant seem to find a way to do the following:

I have the following examples in a filename -

(20821
(10525
(20745
(15789

I require a closed bracket at the end of the number sequence to match the start of it. If I could use the * as a wildcard it would be- (***** to (*****) and Id be laughing!

There are words in the file name too, before and after the numbers. (these are all different length words).
Every number is unique.
The number sequence is always 5 digits.



Any help is appreciated.

1:RegEx:
Code: Select all
Match:  ^(\(\d\d\d\d\d)(.*)
Replace:  \1)\2


Match names that start with a paren followed by 5 digits.
Keep that, stick a closing paren after the 5th digit, & keep everything else.

Code: Select all
(20821            (20821)
(20821 123456     (20821) 123456
(20821abc123456   (20821)abc123456
