Question calibre comments

I use calibre a lot and keep a fairly large library. I like to have abstracts in the comments for each book. It is tedious to go through each comment to check its integrity. So I decided comments less than 200 characters i would replace. But when I did a search on short comments the answers were erratic. I used the rational expression ^.{0,200}$ in the calibre search comments box from "edit metadata, edit metadata in bulk, search and replace." I replaced the short comment fields with blanks (because I don't know how to mark them otherwise) and many comment fields are not blanked that only hold 10 or 20 characters. Any help? Thanks if you can help me. frank
