Hello everyone,

Is there a universal way to find mismatches between source and target for variable type of strings as long as it start with “%”?

For example, I current have a source string:

Version %1$s of function

and I want to make sure the target also has “%1$s” in it.

I tried the following check and it works:

Source = "%[:digit:]$[:alphanum:]“

Target = -”%[:digit:]$[:alphanum:]"

Regular Expression = ON

PowerSearch = ON

However this is quite restrictive and only works for the case where the variable has four letters: % + digit + $ + alphanumeric. I am wondering if there is a universal check that can pick up any “%” kind of variables, e.g., one check to detect any mismatch between source and target no matter it is “%2”, “%3ss”, “%dd”, “%1$$$”, etc.

Any help would be much appreciated! Many thanks in advance.
