The Match Pattern function searches for regular expression in string beginning at offset. If the function finds a match, it splits string into three substrings. A regular expression requires a specific combination of characters for pattern matching. This function gives you fewer options for matching strings but performs more quickly than the Match Regular Expression function.
The Match Pattern function is compatible with a limited set of regular expressions and does not support character grouping, alternate pattern matching, backreferences, or non-greedy quantification. You can use a specific set of special characters to refine the search. The connector pane displays the default data types for this polymorphic function.
