    Possibility of using backreferences in the "Replace" box

    GregV

      Hello,

       

      I wanted to use the Replace feature (Ctrl-R) to specify a regular expression and use a backreference within the replace string but it seems this is not working. I found a 9-year old similiar thread dealing with the same thing:

       

      Grouping & Back-references with regular expressions on Replace Text window

       

      Apparently there's a feature request asking for this but it has no status:

      https://apex.oracle.com/pls/apex/f?p=43135:7:16721597602132::NO:RP,7:P7_ID:16761

       

      Any idea if this will be implemented one day?

      Thanks
