Try with this expression
(?<=Net Amount Due )((\d+.\d+.\d+))|(?<=\n)(\d+.\d+.\d+)

Hi @Sudharsan_Ka ,

I try the regex ady and it only work for sample 3 and 5…While sample 1,2 and 4 does not work in this case.

Many thanks in advance

HI @SH_94
(?<=Net Amount Due)\s+(\d+.\d+.\d+)|(?<=\n[A-Z]{3}\n\n).*(?=\n)

Try this and you need to do one thing before returning to excel

  • You need to trim the values
  • You need to split by space and return the last value

both the values have been matched

The 3 and 5 values need to use split method to get the appropriate value

Can you try this split(Value 3," ")(2)

Hi @Sudharsan_Ka ,

Is there anyway that we can automate to split it in the Uipath if we encounter this scenario? As the number can be change from time to time.

Many thanks again

Okay but you need only the last value of the line right?

If you need the last value all the time you can use split like this

Split(“4,725.00 472.50 5,197.50 25”," “)(Split(“4,725.00 472.50 5,197.50 25”,” ").Count-1)

It will retrieve the last value in the whole string
