    Default using wildcards

    I&#039;ve never found a reference to this and don&#039;t think it exists, but is it there a way to find text WITHIN a file with wildcards?<BR><BR>I&#039;m using the filesystemobject method to open up .htm files and display contents based on a search. Unfortunately my search has to be exact for it to work. At this time I cannot move to SQL where I could eliminate this problem. Maybe in the future, but I&#039;m just looking for a work around for now.<BR><BR>Thanks, Jeff

    Default It is called regular expressions...

    ...see the VBS or JS docs. regexp&#039;s weren&#039;t introduced to VBS until version 5, and in my opinion are still not as good as they are in JS. But they should be good enough for simple wild card searches.<BR><BR>
