Advanced Search for Compounds

Many of my smart groups in EndNote require searching for compounds such as SnBi2Te4.

If, like Visual Basic (etc), one could input advanced search criteria into Smart Groups it would be incredibly useful.  For example # often means any ONE numeric (or genearl) character needs to fit in this spot.
I.E.  SnBi#Te# could bring up SnBi2Te4, SnBi4Te7, etc.

as opposed to the current SnBi*Te* which could bring up something totally unrelated, maybe “SnBi as a new team symbol in athletics”

More options like *, or #, would be quite useful for fine-tuning smart searches.
