Hello,
I was wondering how to create a regex code that would look for a specific word followed by a space then a nonspecific number.

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

Something like this i assume?
This will match for strings those start with "word" then followed by AT LEAST one space and then AT LEAST one number.
Regex reg = new Regex("word\\s+[0-9]+");

You can remove +'s if you only need one space or one number and that is a must. You can use *'s instead of +'s if you want them to occur zero or more times.

The solution suggested by Anil seems good to me.

I would also like to add that you can use regular expression building tool to learn and create regular expressions. One such good tool is here on CodeProject:
