Find and replace string with wildcard

I want to be able to search for example:

**<p class="calibre1 calibre5 sgc-1">Page 62</p>**

But replace 62 with another number automatically. Is there a way to make Sigil search for the string while making the number a wildcard so I can delete them??

Thanks!

use regex mode
Code:
\*\*<p class="calibre1 calibre5 sgc-1">Page \d+</p>\*\*
Replace with a nil (blank) replace string

note space\d+ replaces any amount of digits following the space

Very cool thanks, this is a converted PDF and they have Page # in bold and was hoping to find a good way to get rid of it in one swoop. I've never used regex mode, I'll give it a shot!

Thanks again!

Please note the the REGEX expression I supplied is:
1) untested. (Be prepared to "Discard your current Sigil Edit session.) Save your work before trying.
2) I took your supplied search term to be as exactly what you were replacing. Switching to Code View, exposes additional tags that must be accounted for.
3) I did not see any additional White space, except for the space after the word "Page ",

Okay, thanks, so REGEX is code view right?

I just tried a wildcard "*" for the number, but I'll give yours a shot when I get to my computer.

REGEX works in either view.

The REGEX search term differs between the views.

In Code View, you will have some sort of tags that wrap the Book View, visible string.
I selected my term based upon your example (Book View), that included Astrix

It's "\d+", not "/d+". You're using a forward slash instead of a backslash.

I DID expand it Even showing up on a goodly portion of my screen, my eyes could not pry individual letters out of that one
I usually have no problem reading other screen shots (OK, I do squint sometimes )

LOL, sorry to strain some eyes, I just did a print screen copied to paint and saved it didn't resize it.

But for those in the market for new eyes, check this out!
