Add Simple expressions

If the pattern you are matching does not require complicated regular expressions, you can add a simple expression by following these steps:

  1. Open the locator properties.
  2. On the Format Definitions tab, in the Formats group, click Add simple expressionIcon to add simple expression.
  3. Enter a simple expression.

    If a simple expression contains any syntax errors, a red warning message appears in the error column for that format.

  4. Enter a description that clearly states what data the simple expression is designed to extract. Include examples of successful matches as well as what does not match.
  5. Optionally, click on the General tab and configure the Settings for Non-Regular Expressions .
  6. Optionally, click on the Evaluation Settings tab and add keywords for evaluation.
  7. Open a test document and click Test to test your settings.
  8. Optionally, click Close to close the locator properties window.
  9. Save the changes to your project.
