Could you be more specific? You can find this exact expression when you just call it: P123/ABC.

Oh sorry,

I have a list of products P123 to P500 in number order but 5 or 6 of them have the extended code P123/ABC the numbers and letters may vary so you may get P234/DEF they also may change from day to day so I cant just isolate individual codes.

Hope that helps

ok, the most general variant is "P[0-9][0-9][0-9](/[A-Z][A-Z][A-Z])?" - it also matches P000/AAA, you can narrow it to "P[1-5][0-9][0-9](/[A-Z][A-Z][A-Z])?" and so on. if you want the most specific thing, i will post something more complex.
