Syntax

INDEX(<string>;<string with regex>)

Description

Finds the first occurrence of the given regular expression or -1 if not found.

Datameer tries to match entire record without automatically adding or to the regular expression. If the record has multiple lines, then this must be accounted for with (?s) or line terminators. 

Examples

Column1RegexINDEX returns
Hello HannesH[^e]6
Hello HannesH[^ae]-1
Hello HannesH[^el]6


=INDEX("Hello Hannes"; "H[^e]") returns integer value 6
=INDEX("Hello Hannes"; "H[^ae]") returns integer value -1
