Hi Nabeel,

Look at the FullForm of the expression to see what pattern(s) really
match what you are looking for. For instance,

FullForm[D[f[x, y, z], x]]

FullForm[Derivative[1, 0, 0][f][x, y, z]]

D[f[x, y, z], x] /. Derivative[x_, ___][_][___] -> x



P.S. I have cross-posted your query to MathGroup.
