Hi Experts,
       I have been trying to find Regular expressions for two fields but cannot find anything similar on the internet. I have one field which is varchar (alphanumeric) and it allows the * wildcard. The second field is a numeric field which also allows the * wildcard. The user should be able to enter both even if they dont know the complete item and be able to use the * wild card for search. I am not familiar with writing regular expressions can someone show me which ones would work for both these? Thanks in advance
