I need to find words between “Description” and “Issued by”. This two words are always constant.


hi @sshitol

find the below regEx, it will help you to get the text between “Description” and “Issued by”

RegEx : (?<=(Description))[A-Za-z0-9\n\s\t]*(?=(Issued by))


I tried but its not working

Hi @Ajju,

(?<=Description)([\S\s]*)(?=Issued by)

Try this.

System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex.Match(strInput,“(?<=Description)([\S\s]*)(?=Issued by)”).Value.Trim

Check with this xaml, you need to pass this paragraph and the input from string and to string. you will get output string between those two strings/words.
StringBetween2Words.xaml (5.4 KB)

Refer this post to extract words between two known words.

Try to use split functionality with multiple delimiters

Hello @sshitol

the reason this code is not working is there are characters/words at every new line

So try this pattern
(?<=Description)([^\n]*\n+)+(?=Issued by)
and let me know if it works or not

Can we remove those extra spaces and get that output in single line


Try with this line of code to remove extra spaces from your string, make sure there is no newline character, if newline characters are then we need to remove those as well.

Regex.Replace(yourOutputString, "\s+", " ")

Hello @sshitol
use the above code suggested by @sarathi125

if it doesnt work or if there are new lines which are not getting replaced just replace "\s+" from the code posted above with "\s+|\n+" and it’ll work.
