    In case you know regular expressions match_regex() would be the one 😉

    There are plenty examples out there on what regex would look like. It would be something like this:


    Then, have a look at the match_regex() syntax in chapter 6.3.102 of SAP Data Services Reference Guide [] and adjust if required.

    Thank you,

    If you are looking to have those three email address be a "match", you might consider using the logic built into the Match transform. It uses a similarity score to determine how alike two things are, and can be configured to find them as a duplicate. there are other things that come into play with the match transform in that you have to get the records together in a logical group, without the group getting too large or excluding once you want to have compared.
