I have a standard for computer names which consists of 2 characters for support group, 3 characters for department, 3 characters of unique LU and 6 additional characters.  I want to search for the unique LU,  which would seem to be _____ABC which I would think to be 5 single characters followed by ABC, but this doesn't work.  _%_%_%_%_%ABC doesn't work.  %ABC would find it, but would also find any other computer with ABC anywhere in the name.  I really don't want to return all computers with ABC in the name and make the user choose which one is right.  Any thoughts?

  • Try systemname regex .{5}ABC
  • You are describing a search that ends with ABC, but there are six characters after the ABC, correct? Also, are you searching in the Inventory using an advanced search or with a query? Keep in mind that Smart Labels use a query in the backend, so if you are making a smart label that matters.
