select case when 'DR DREW J' regexp '^SR\s.*' then 'Y' else 'N' end; Result: 'Y' s/b 'N'.

Works correctly with:

select case when 'DR DREW J' regexp '^TR\s.*' then 'Y' else 'N' end; Result: 'N'

select case when 'DR DREW J' regexp '^sR\s.*' then 'Y' else 'N' end; Result: 'N'

select case when 'DR DREW J' regexp '^DR\s.*' then 'Y' else 'N' end; Result: 'Y'

12.0.0.2483 is really an old version (was it the v12 GA) - I would test with a current 12.0.1 EBF (or read the according EBF readme) to see if this is corrected... cf. Breck's according list here...

I have confirmed that this is a bug in SQL Anywhere's REGEXP processing for ^. I believe this bug affects all versions for SQL Anywhere 11 and 12.

In this context, the ^ is unnecessary, since REGEXP matches the whole string. As a work around, you can remove the unnecessary ^ from the regular expression and the regular expression matching should behave correctly.

I have created engineering issue 721070 to track this issue and I will post an update once I know what build numbers will contain the fix.

The fix for this issue will appear in 12.0.1.3803 (or higher) as well as 11.0.1.2885 (or higher).
