You can use 'getMAXFileObjectNames' to get an array of object names in the file.
Then collect only the names that match your pattern in a loop like this:
objsIWant = for o in objNames where matchPattern o pattern:myPattern collect o

Now simply use 'mergeMAXFile' with this 'objsIWant' as your name_array argument.
See maxscript help on these functions: 'getMAXFileObjectNames', 'mergeMAXFile'.

Looks like objNames is undefined, try changing it to objetos

so...


objetos = getmaxfileobjectnames "c:\\project\\ep002_background_02.max"
Objsiwant = for o in objetos where matchPattern o pattern:"*mesa*" collect o
mergeMAXFile "c:\\project\\ep002_background_02.max" Objsiwant
