Is there a way to have a condition based on whether the revision scheme used is a numeric or alpha revision?
You can use SQL wildcards.
As an example, the image below would ensure the first character of the revision is a letter. A number would not meet this condition. If you want to ensure the first character is a number, use [0-9]
Very cool tip, Jeff. I didn't realize that the 'unusual' wildcards used in EPDM conditions were actually SQL wildcards. I have a question, though.
I searched for SQL wildcards and learned that the square brackets are used to enclose a list of characters to be matched against the searched field - any character in the list constitutes a match. I noticed, though, that you seemed to be using a special case wherein [A-Z] means 'any character from A to Z' instead of the literal meaning of 'either A or - or Z'.
Look in the Administrator guide in the "Condition Operators for Workflow Transitions" section. There is a table with the heading "Comparison Operators for Text Compare" that list all of these.
