I suspect I have a misunderstanding of how regular expressions work, I'm trying to locate lines with "SSORD" or "SS ORD", ignoring case. In the wizard, I built an expression to search for:

  • the phrase ss once only
  • the character zero or once
  • the phrase ord once only

However, the search is returning lines that contain strings such as "processing record", "processor ordinal", etc. How do I indicate that I don't want anything else between the three patterns specified above?

It looks like the regex generator is not generating an exact expression. For your needs you want:

ss ?ord

Or using Boolean expression simply:

ssord OR "ss ord"
