Spanish term or phrase: comodín (comodón)
Context: data field on an online banking site - is this word used for a "dummy" field in Colombia?

Campo alfanumérico de 23 dígitos, obligatorio, en el cual se registra un número genérico que permite la captura de movimiento cuando el número de la tarjeta no es legible en los comprobantes manuales.

Explanation:
You are right. The word "comodín" may mean "dummy" in some cases. It really means "wild card". CUALQUIER CAMPO: Se trata de un campo comodín para buscar el término(s) por el que se quiere recuperar y no se tiene seguridad en qué campo introducirlo

wildcard


Explanation:
In certain word processing programs the term "wildcard" is used in searches. Word, for instance, provides the following example: 'You can use wildcards ... type a question mark (?) to match any single character, or type an asterisk (*) to match any number of characters. For example, s?t finds "sat" and "set"; s*d finds "sad" and "started."'
