I'm trying to extend the Regex functionality that yoinky discussed in the following thread: [url][/url]

I'm trying to do multiple finds from a table of regex's. Essentially, I have a table of URL regex's. I have another table of URLs.

What I'm looking for is a list of URLs that match any of the regex's in the regex table. I can do this just fine with the non-obj functions you provided, but I can't figure out how to do this with the Obj functions.

Here's what I'm doing with this non Obj functions (which takes forever to execute):

select URLs.*
from RegExURLs,URLs
Where dbo.regexFind(URLs.URL, RegExURLs.RegExURL, 1 ) = 1

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
