This should be easy for the Regex experts ... or maybe I can do it another

I have to change the beginning of a string.

The original string is ALWAYS proceeded by _parm

For example

I need to change NetlistOf6Port_parm to Study4 and should result in the
string now being

I have thousands of beginnings that need changing so I am trying

put replaceText (field "Gates", * & "_parm", "Study4") into field

The * & is what I need help with... what is a method for doing a wildcard so
anything before and _parm is changed?
