Keyword Highlight for Number Formats
Is there a way to add a keyword which will highlight a string based on this format?

nnn n nn nn

Basically, it is a 3-digit number followed by a space, then a 1-digit number followed by a space, etc.
For those in the telecom world, it is a Nortel/Avaya TN I am hoping to have highlighted automatically in a session.

Hi dlong,

The following regular expression can be used to achieve your goal as long as all of the n's are numbers:


Does that work for you?

Hi Brittney. Thanks for the reply. When I try to enter the regular expression above, the dialog comes up:

"The specified regular expression '\d{3}\s\d\s\d{2}\s\d{2}' is invalid. A regular expression cannot contain spaces."

Hi dlong,

Please send an email to, with ***ATTN: Brittney, Forum Thread #13973*** in the subject field, along with your download account email address and I will provide you with a link to download a pre-release version that supports regular expressions with spaces.

Thanks Brittney, the beta version works really well in highlighting keyword regular expressions with spaces now.
