If MyText is the string represented by your example, use System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex.Matches(MyText, "\d{2}/\d{2}/\d{4}") to get all date matches.

Use System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex.Matches(MyText, "((\d+,)+\d+)|((?=>at\s)\d+)|((?=>Total\s)\d+)") to get the amounts. This regular expression checks for numbers with commas first, and if none exist, then search for string "at " or "Total " to locate the amounts (in case the amounts do not contain a comma).

Worked perfectly fine, Thanks!

Thanks for putting efforts in studio to make this file. Appreciate it! :slight_smile:

But, the text I gave was just an random example. The actual texts can be anything and can contain any number if dates and amounts at different places in string.

Thanks again!

Hey @Anthony_Humphries

Could this be also modified for accepting the date format , dd-mmm-yyyy (eg, 29-Mar-2020) in the same expression?

Yes, but you would need to change it to System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex.Matches(MyText, "(\d{2}/\d{2}/\d{4})|(\d{2}-\w{3}-\d{4})").
