Hi All, Can some one tell me how to use like operator or regexp with multiple values?

I need to check for invalid column  name.

Valid ones start with  Git (GIT 2455-xxx) or (Robo del-12333-x) or (IC 2222)

Invalid ones that do not begin with GIT or ROBO or IC.
I get error  when I tried below
  REGEXP_match(Name, 'Robo', 'Guts', 'IC') then 0
else 1 end as Naming Convention
or when Name like ('%Git', '%Robo%', '%IC%') . Any suggestions?

REGEXP_match isn't Oracle syntax, and the fragment you posted is incomplete. Please post something more informative, and tell which SQL flavour you are talking 'bout.
For Oracle you can find easy to understand examples at http://www.orafaq.com/node/2404 .

Try this:
case when regexp_like(col1,'^(GIT|Robo|IC) ') then 0 else 1 end

Since you initially showed your search expressions in uppercase, but then showed them in mixed case in your try, I would just add the case insensitive parameter, 'i', to slightwv's solution -
case when regexp_like(column, '^(GIT|ROBO|IC)','i') then 0 else 1 end
