can you try this

System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex.Split(txt, "\\r\\n")(0)+ System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex.Split(txt, "\\r\\n")(1)

Hey @sharu_priya

This can be done using string manipulation.

But that doesn’t make sense without some business rule to it.

What is the business rule here so that we can build logic for all scenarios.

Hope this helps.

Because theres a 2 in your input.

If you really want to remove the “2” you can do this

System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex.Split(txt, "\\r\\n")(0) + System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex.Split(txt, "\\r\\n")(1).Replace("2", "")

we are splitting by two or more characters \r\n so we have to use this function instead of the standard string.split

The String.Split function only works with single characters which is why we cant use it here


Sorry for the delay.

I have given now. Thanks much for your time:)
