Add Charater to everyline that begins with



  • I’m trying to add + to every line that begins with 31, skips if it’s not in the begining and skips if it already has a +

    Example:

    97898795433131
    +319797831331
    3146464646463
    

    to

    97 89 87 95 31
    +31 97 97 83 31
    +31 46 46 46 31
    

    not

    97 89 87 95 +31
    ++31 97 97 83 +31
    +31 46 46 46 +31
    

    thanks



  • Hello, @clyde-parker and All,

    Not too difficult with regexes !

    SEARCH ^(?=31)

    REPLACE +

    • This regex will search for beginning of current line , so the virtual zero-length location, but ONLY IF  followed with the string 31

    • Then, in replacement, it will simply add the + symbol at the very beginning of current line

    Best regards,

  • works pretty good thank you sir!
