Thanks for the reply.
This should help.. But I'd like to run the space checks through verify.
It will help as a process.
In that case you should log an Idea for an enhancement to DRC.
Reading this makes me wonder if there is any PROBLEM with using spaces in net names?
I suppose if the VERIFY checks don't look for it, it must be okay, which is why I'm asking.

I'm old school and don't believe in using spaces to name anything.
This RE will find white spaces in Netnames in DRC-002:
In Customer Support we recommend a very limited character set across anything that can be named including project locations. This set seems to be stable over all tools and addins: a-z A-Z 0-9 _ Never a space or any other character special or not.
I'm still kind of amazed that VERIFY wouldn't verify something as simple as that by default, so it must not be that important.
but thanks for the extremely complicated Regular Expression to search for that! (seriously, I would never have figured that one out on my own)
Now that we know that the software doesn't even look for it, I suppose if spaces in net names was REALLY an issue we would have heard more about it by now, huh?
