Object Explorer search : how to type a regular expression ?


I’m using Toad for Sybase, free version.

I’m trying to use a regular expression as input in the search field of the Object Explorer.

It’s odd : if I search for "tablename", it does not interpret the character '’ as a special character.
When I click elsewhere, it converts what I entered into the equivalent regular expression “table*name”, and displays it, so the search functionality clearly works with regular expressions, but I haven’t found a way to enter one.

What am I doing wrong ?

Thanks and Regards,

Hello Gilles,

You should be able to click on the filter button and change the search type. Please see attached image.



Yes, that works !

Thanks a lot,
