NetView V5 allows you to use wild cards for comparisons.
V5 example for all nodes that the Selection Name starts with ABCD:
(('Selection Name' ~ '^ABCD) && ('isNode'
V4 does not allow wild cards, however, you can accomplish what you ask
This is an example that I have used on V4.
(((' Selection Name' >= 'ABCD') && ('Selection
Name' <= 'ABCDzzzz')) && ('isNode' = True)))
Note: lowercase zzzz place-holders because of higher decimal
equivalent than ZZZZ
If you have longer hostnames, use more zzzzzzzz.
You can substitute IP Hostname for Selection Name.
