Are there any built-in function in ADSO to check if a given field is in a user defined format.

for example: i want to check if the record is in the format ABxxn.(where in the record should begin with 'AB' & xx should be eqaul to another varible say var-1 and n is any numeric value).

can i do it using LIKE command or SUBSTRING command? if so how?
