    How do I apply a specific character style to specific text?

      Fortunately, this isn't an issue of how to go about creating fractions. I've already chosen a route for that. I'm simply applying a Character Style that checks the opentype "fractions" box.

       

      Here's an example of the content I'm dealing with:

      Above is my styled table in Indesign, after pasting in data I'm being given data in excel spreadsheets.

       

      How might I quickly apply my "ptable_BODY FRACTIONS" style to only certain text, like: "1/2"  +  "1/4"  +  "1/8"  & preferably random arbitrary fractions like "34/69"?

       

      GREP can do some great things, but can it selectively apply character styles?

       

      This might be a job for a paragraph style. I'm not sure.  . .
