Basically I have a list of jobs. They can be in several similar formats and I want to group based on only one of these formats;

E12345-1-PLN
ENG-E12345-1
ENG-12452-1
15234-1-PLN

I need to be able to group these so that any Job that starts with an 'E' gets filtered into Electrical, but the ENG at the beginning of some of the job #'s willl throw off 'startswith'.

So in the list above I should only get the following couple of jobs;
E12345-1-PLN
ENG-E12345-1

Here is what I tried;

if {Command.JobNum} Like ["*E#*"] then "Electrical"
else "Main Shop"

So what symbol can I use to represent E followed by a number?
