    Regular Expressions

    Hi all, I am trying to make a regular expression to only math alphabetic characters in vb script. i am trying to use something similar to what i would use in javascript but i cant get it working.
    Code:
    StringToSearch = "asdasdddd3423d"
    
    Set myRegExp = New RegExp
    myRegExp.IgnoreCase = True
    myRegExp.Global = True
    myRegExp.Pattern = "[a-z]"
    
    expressionmatch = myRegExp.Test(StringToSearch)
    
    If expressionmatch Then
    Response.Write myRegExp.Pattern & " was found in " & StringToSearch
    Else
    Response.Write myRegExp.Pattern & " was not found in " & StringToSearch
    End If
    it half works, it dose match the alphabetic characters but i want it to return a false value if there are numbers in the search string... any ideas where i am going wrong?

    Try

    myRegExp.Pattern = "^[a-z]+$"

    If this post contains any code, I may or may not have tested it. It's probably just example code, so no getting knickers in a bunch over a typo, OK? If it doesn't have basic error checking in it, such as object detection or checking if objects are null before using them, put that in there. I'm giving examples, not typing up your whole app for you. You run code at your own risk.
