Fetching date from email msg

In a mail body some text will be therer with the date
i have to fetch the date alone from the mail body
how can i do it ?
for example:
we can have : 19/11/1997 some text over here
next: some text over here 19/11/1997

like above example how can i do it?

@Jebarohith19 If Date is always in that format, we can use regex to get the Date, The regex you would need to use is in this link:

i have no idea how to use regex in uipath .
should i use regex expression in assign activity?

@Jebarohith19 Do you want to Store that Date value in a Variable ?

i will first fetch the body of mail message in a variable which will contain the above format which i mentioned(text with date or date with text starting)
so mailmessage will be in a variable by using assign activity.
then what to do?

@Jebarohith19 Use An Assign Activity to a String Variable like this :
strDate = System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex.Matches(mailBodyVar,"\d{2}\/\d{2}\/\d{4}")(0).Value.ToString

so this regex is for date starting with text?
