Campaign data won't filter

Participant ✭ ✭ ☆

I've created campaign utm tags with a number of pieces of information set off by hyphens. The hyphens help me disaggregate the data easily in Excel. 

 

For example:

FY17-804E-contentarea-topic-adsize

 

What I want to do is create a filter that pulls data for all campaigns that start with "FY17-804." But it's not working. It works if I just do the ones that start with FY17, so I think that the hyphen is throwing things off. I've tried equals (with the whole tag), starts with, contains, regex match, regex contains. I've tried combining "starts with FY17" and "contains 804." I've tried escaping the hypen in the regex "FY17\-804." Nothing works. 

 

Any ideas?

Ok I've been playing around with this more. It's not the hyphen that's the problem. I have bounce rate as the metric and if I include the campaign field as the dimension, then it works. But if I want to use device category for my dimension, then it doesn't. Any ideas why?
