Rule "contents - contain match" does not work Sat Jan 05, 2019 11:12 am • by MacLitze
Hi,

when I make a rule with "Contents - contain" it works.
But when I take "Contents - contain match" and put in exactly the same pattern hazel didn't find it!
I'm working with the version 4.3.3 built 1551.

Thanks for any suggestions!

Can you provide more details like the text you are trying to match and the pattern you are using?

Text:
Kontoauszug vom 01.12.2018 bis 31.12.2018

This pattern don't work:
    Contents - contain match - Kontoauszug vom ,◦ Date#1, bis ,◦ Date#2
    Automatically detect date format don't work and also when I take the pattern 31.12.1999

That works:
Contents - contain - Kontoauszug vom 01.12.2018 bis 31.12.2018

Does your pattern actually have the commas there?

There are no commas.
I just directly copy and past the pattern!

What works better for me is if I put the “anything“ pattern between and before the dates.
If you try “Kontoauszüge(...anything...)Date#1(....anything...)Date#2”
That worked in my Bankstatements.

Trying it here, it doesn't work with automatic date detection but it does if I specify the pattern. Maybe double-check your pattern? If you are still having problems, email in your rules to support.
