I'm making a String Regular Expression, and I want to search through a string looking for like 50 specific names(followed by numbers) is there any way that I can make some kind of list that the SRE will cycle through and check for all the words?

Right now my code looks like this:

StringRegExp($1, '(Word )([0-9]{1,3})', 1)

And I need to have the code search for different words all with numbers after.

I was hoping someone had a suggestion other than just creating 50 StringRegExp()

I've looked at the help and still haven't found anything, Please Help!

You can use alternation. Make your pattern like this to capture word1 or word2 or word3 provided each of them are followed by three digits (which this pattern doesn't capture):
