Wildcards in a Javascript dropdown

 Im trying to change some options on a drop down but the dates listed are different based on account.

Like one form is:

Period end: 12/31/2018 Produced: 01/07/2019 Original (Year end)

but another is

Period end: 12/31/2018 Produced: 01/04/2019 Original (Year end)

The period end is always the same but the "produced" will change. I've tried wildcarding it "Produced: 01/*/2019" and with 2 asterisks, neither worked.

I cant use index position either as its different on each.

Any help on how to accomplish this?

Hello James. As discussed during our calls, wildcards are not allowed in the 'Option Name(s)' field of the 'Set DropDown List Value on Web Page'. A combination of the 'Extract Data from Web Page' action, like described in this article, along with the appropriate Regular Expressions can do the trick.
