I doubt whether you can extract a string based on the font, you need to have some reference like starting position or line or some tag etc… you can use string functions like search, contains, substring etc…


I have given font as for example only , need to ASOS_SCT_TrackAndTrace_PtsFeeds_Stage1_Rebound_Message_ProcessingFailed.


Can you search for “ProcessingFailed” word ? Is that key word consistent ?


Hi @NagaSujitha

Is the text always preceded by three arrows? If yes, you could use this regex:
(?<=↳\t↳\t↳ ).+

The code that will give you the output string to assign is this:
System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex.Match(inputString,"(?<=↳\t↳\t↳ ).+").ToString


No the issue is, the extracted value may change so need to extract with position.

Some how i got it like result as

Product Code = ? ? ? ASOS_SCT_TrackAndTrace_PtsFeeds_Stage1_Rebound_Message_ProcessingFailed 1

now just need to extract ASOS_SCT_TrackAndTrace_PtsFeeds_Stage1_Rebound_Message_ProcessingFailed


I tried but getting empty result


I forgot that the forum will sanitize the tab character :slight_smile:

I edited my previous post to display the correct solution.
Also see here for an example workflow with two separate solutions included (.Split string method and Regex)
