The RE says to match

Var workID=

followed by
. => any single character
? => which may be omitted

followed by ';'

However, the text you want to match is

var workID=2346077;

which uses a lower-case "v", and has a multi-digit id.

So it's not surprising that the id is not extracted.

One way to build an RE is as follows:

1) start with the source text:

var workID=2346077;

2) escape any meta-characters

there are none in this case

3) add capture brackets round the part you want to extract

var workID=(2346077);

4) replace the variable parts of the string with suitable wild-card characters.

In this case, you want to capture the variable digits:

var workID=(\d+);

5) optimise if necessary to avoid back-tracking

Not necessary here

6) Test, and test again using actual data

e.g. Regexp tester from

Or ORO web-page:
