I am trying to figure out how to use a regular expression in a dataview's RowFilter. In PHP, it looks like this:
`field` REGEXP '[[:<:]]word[[:>:]]', which will find instances in the MySQL table where "word" has a word boundary on it. This is what I tried in vb.Net:
dv.RowFilter = "[field] REGEXP '\bword\b'" and I also tried dv.RowFilter = "[field] REGEXP '[[:<:]]word[[:>:]]'". Both of these return this error:
Syntax error: Missing operand after 'REGEXP' operator. Can someone tell me what I am doing wrong? Thanks.

Hi rbichon;

You can't execute a regular expression with in the RowFilter property of the DataView. The RowFilter property gets or sets the expression used to filter which rows are viewed in the DataView. The expression can be built using the tokens from the following documentation.

Look starting at the remarks section.
