How to properly Escape Characters in MVISION RegEx

I am trying to write a RegEx to pick up on special characters [.-\,/] and white space.  While my expressions work in online tools such as or even the suggested RegexBuddy software from the online help and the expressions are not picking up on any of these characters.

As an example, I have tried \- and \\- and \\\\- and \\\\\-  Surprisingly if I am just looking for a single digit \d still works fine.  Please advise.
