GREP Expression for Varying Text

May 15, 2012 7:59 AM

Tags: #for #text #grep #expressions #varying

I have an index in which I'd like to Find/Change all the entries with a character style, but stop the GREP expression before the tab, leader, page numb. They vary though. Here are 3 indexed examples:
A16T-PVUNL-3
A-100-90-3CT-300
B-20-22-50-3/4 shank


Is there any way to constrict this to just the characters and digits, then stopping before the tab? I achieved it in another index whose entries are 7-digits only with this expression: ^(\d+)

 

The return constricted it so that search did not find the page numbers after the tabs.

 

Thanks.
