I'm attempting to create a report and would like to filter the items using a wildcard. For example I have a bunch of pay items that all share the 1st 5 #'s and there are a lot of them. These Pay Items are attached as item types to dgn elements. I don't want to have to list out every single pay item, but would like to use a wildcard after the 1st 5 numbers. I was wondering if I could filter using some sort of wildcard like 028457* or *028457*.
I have attempted this with a number of variations but have not found one that works.
I have tried:
and a number of other variations with no success. Is this possible? If not does anyone have another recommendation to do something similar to this?
I am using the latest version of MicroStation Connect Edition.
Thanks in advance for your help!

I tried the same with no success. The Report filter dialog has only a few options for comparison...
There doesn't appear to be an option that enables wild-cards in string comparisons.
It would be great to have regular expressions as well.

Thanks Jon! The use of wildcards would make reporting a lot easier and should be included! If you hear something different down the road, please let me know.

I agree. You might like to post your suggestion to the Ideas Forum.
I agree also. Things like that basic should be there. I spent pretty ugly bunch of hours trying to find a way to filter sheets by their names and to create lists - with no success :-(
It is also bigger shame that nobody from Bentley will probably listen. In less than year of using uStn and waiting for update 14, I found myself very disappointed by the program itself. . .
