For future questions, there are several items on the File Exchange that may help: 20589 - rex: a pedestrian regular expression operator synopsis generator 15215 - RegexpHelper 40781 - regexpHelper (app version) 41899 - regexpBuilder (Disclaimer: I wrote this one) All of these should be pretty helpful in determining what your regexp would be.
