How to search for monetary amounts containing $ without being seen as wildcard

If you want to search for specific amounts with dollar signs (and commas if required), you should use a regular expression. Regular expressions will find the text that you see in the Contents tab including symbols and non alphabet/numeral characters. 

The regular expression assistant has an area where you can enter the text that you want to search for, so that lets you test out the regular expression that you are creating.
