Re: Using Regular Expressions in QTP10 checkpoints
It's fairly important to know why you need that . before the * if you plan to use regular expressions much.
H.*me will match "Home" but it will also match "Hme" and "Hey, let's go see the movie Fame" and "Hzzyqxl9823$*<_!!qq[+%me" and an infinite number of other things that start with an "H" and end with an "me" no matter how many of what characters lie (or don't lie) in between.
I point this out because I am assuming it's likely that you were using "Home" as an example, not as the real value you're trying to match (unless you really do need a regular expression to match more than one word that meets the "H.*me" expression). So I thought I'd steer you toward a greater understanding in case you're applying what you learn here to a different regular expression.
