What are you doing this in? Generically try [a-zA-Z]+\.[0-9]+  Some 
languages support shortcuts, so in perl you could use \w+\.\d+

Basically it says one more characters in that are upper or lower case 
letters or a digit (the perl one also includes underscore _ ) then a 
period (its a back slash then a period because . has a special meaning 
in regex's) and then one or more digits.

This is all untested and has absolutely no warranty of any kind.

Hope this helps,
