  • Hi Cbaker,

    It is difficult to determine the specific criteria that you are requesting in a regular expression based on the prefix and date range you indicated.

    Very simple matching expressions can be made using .*

    For example,
    would match all strings beginning with DW_ARCHIVE_

    I have found that using an online Regex tester, such as is effective at helping to create and troubleshoot regular expressions.
