Can I use a wildcard in "File Name or Type" when exporting files?

I'm trying to export several drawings as PDFs. I only want to print drawings with the following criteria:

 

XXXXXXXX-AXX.slddrw

 

where [X] can be any character.

 

Selecting the drawings to export manually is a chore. They are spread across several directories and each directory also has several other drawings that I do NOT want to export (exporting these would make the task an order of magnitude longer).

 

I have tried using asterisks to no avail:

 

*A*.slddrw

*-A*.slddrw

 

 

The task scheduler exports all files in the specified directory, violating the criteria specified. Is there any way of prescribing files for export using wildcards?
