Hi list,

For many hours now I tried to construct a regular exprsession to verify that a string:

Is divided in substrings of maximum 8 characters (qualifiers) separated by a dot '.'
All first characters of a qualifier should be alphabetic the others alphanumeric
The first qualifier can not contain '*' or '%'
The remainig qualifiers may contain '*' and '%'

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
