Can Search and Replace use Wild Card Characters?

Post

Hello,

 

I just wondered can Search and Replace use wild card characters?

 

I'd like via a script to go to a specified text field and select from the 'top' of the field to a given point - then delete the selected data, the example as follows:

 

Search for:

beginning of search string = top of field

end of search string = </Metadata>

 

There can be different amounts of text between the top of the text field and where the '</Metadata>' text tag is found - thus my desire to use wild card characters.

 

As always Thanks in advance for assistance.

 

Regards Nick
