I am horrible with coding (GREP).

Would anyone know how to either make this text (sale price) be applied with a character style? When I go to apply a Paragraph style, I either the ending word of the paragraph to have a style, or have it to run after a certain character. I'll include the attachment of how I want it (circled text). After all, I am horrible with coding. Maybe I can learn something!
Thanks!

\$\d+?\.\d{2}

 

It's all wild cards

\$ is a dollar sign the slash 'escapes' the $ which is used for signaling other thing with GREP - so basically means $ literally

\d is a digit

. on it's own is any character - so \. where the slash escapes the . means the actual dot

\d is a digit

{2} is two times

 

In the item code  paragraph style - go to the GREP Nested Style

Insert the code

Select the Character Style for price - if you don't have you you can create one there.
