    Default ignore dates in pdf compare

    I am using BC 4.2.3 64-bit. I have two pdf files. BC comparisons shows difference due to different dates in two pdf files.
    pdf1 has 7/14/2014 and pdf2 has 4/27/2015.
    The date displayed in pdf under Account Due Date.
    How do I configure BC to ignore this date difference?

    Thank you,
    Prashant

    We have a KB article and video for how to define a grammar and mark it as Unimportant, here:

    Do you need to ignore these exact dates? Or a more general date string like this regular expression?

    Thank you Aaron. Your suggestion is worked.

    By looking at the video I came up with:
    mdyyyy \d{1}/\d{1}/\d{4}
    mddyyyy \d{1}/\d{2}/\d{4}
    mmdyyyy \d{2}/\d{1}/\d{4}
    mmddyyyy \d{2}/\d{2}/\d{4}
