HI,Thanks for the reply.
Re: [KevinR] Finding Amount of digits Matching
[In reply to]
Sorry,i'll try to rephrase.I have a table of regular expressions(all represent phone numbers/codes).No i have a code,and i am traversing through the table and i want to find a match.
I want my script to give me back all matches for a code(002577 in this case).
002577 has 6 digits,so it must look for all regular expressions where the first 6 digits match.Thus 002577[6-9][0-5] will match because the first 6 digits of the regular expression are the same.(It must not look at the [6-9][0-5] part,because the code i'm looking for only has 6 digits)
00257795[5-9] and 002577[6-9][6-9] will match for the same reasons.Their first 6 digits match the code i'm looking for.(002577)
The script must just take the code(002577) and get the amount of digits(6) and look at the all the regular expressions i have in my table,but only the first 6 digits.
I hope this makes more sense,Please let me know if it does not.i really would appreciate help with this.
