Understanding Wildcard Masks


Certain tasks allow for the input of an account wildcard to enable you to select accounts that have common numbering as part of their identification. The wildcard can use the ‘?’ and ‘-’ characters; the '?' represents a single character, and the dash '-' is a literal. For example, assume an account mask set to 000-000, as is the case with standard demo data. If you want to select all accounts that end with '1', use the wildcard mask ???-??1. The question marks stand in place of the account digits; the dash is located as expected in the mask.
