The basic language constructs include character classes, quantifiers, and meta-characters. Match any character (except newline) $ Match the end of the line (or before newline at the end) | Alternation (‘or’ statement) () Grouping  Custom character class These two meta-characters are core parts of flexible regular expressions.Character classes are used to define the content of the pattern. For instance, in the first example we lost our wallet.
After trying to understand both of my fears, I have come to the conclusion that I’m right to avoid the soundtrack from Frozen, but Regex is my best friend.
A Regular Expression is an expression that defines a pattern of characters.
You use a Regular Expression to find strings that match a specific pattern.
Range("A1: A3") For Each C In Myrange str Pattern = "(^[0-9])([a-z A-Z])([0-9])" If str Pattern "" Then str Input = C.
Replace(str Input, str Replace)) Else Msg Box ("Not matched") End If End If Next End Sub Private Sub split Up Regex Pattern() Dim reg Ex As New Reg Exp Dim str Pattern As String Dim str Input As String Dim str Replace As String Dim Myrange As Range Set Myrange = Active Sheet.
For a long time there were two things in life that truly scared me and I avoided at all costs.
One was the soundtrack from Frozen, the other was Regular Expressions.
Regular expressions, by definition, are string patterns that describe text.
These descriptions can then be used in nearly infinite ways. Dot, any character (may or may not match line terminators, read on) \d A digit: [0-9] \D A non-digit: [^0-9] \s A whitespace character: [ \t\n\x0B\f\r] \S A non-whitespace character: [^\s] \w A word character: [a-z A-Z_0-9] \W A non-word character: [^\w]\ Escape the next meta-character (it becomes a normal/literal character) ^ Match the beginning of the line .
Replace(str Input, str Replace)) Else Msg Box ("Not matched") End If End If End Sub Function simple Cell Regex(Myrange As Range) As String Dim reg Ex As New Reg Exp Dim str Pattern As String Dim str Input As String Dim str Replace As String Dim str Output As String str Pattern = "^[0-9]" If str Pattern "" Then str Input = Myrange.
Range("A1: A5") For Each cell In Myrange If str Pattern "" Then str Input = cell.
