New to ImportOMatic & regular expressions, but hoping someone can help!
I need to work out how to use regular expressions for a wildcard search - On some of donation imports we are supplied the appeal code, from which i need to work out the correct fund the gift should be allocated against. Because our appeal codes are all put together in a standard way, its easy to work out what it should be by looking at the code, but im not sure how to get IOM to do this in a dictionary, using regular expressions.
As an example, if an Appeal code begins with APPO, i want to put "Appeal Donation"
So if a donation record says APPO0513a, or APPO0613a, the fund should be Appeal Donation.
I think i need to use a regular expression to do a wildcard search, so if an appeal code looks like "APPO*", put Appeal Donation, but how do i do this?
Alternatively, is there a way of saying if the first 4 characters = APPO, then put "Appeal Donation"?
