Hi The DUMA and IPSUM is a random word,
and i want to catch the word before the number


Hi @StevenIsRobotOnline

Try this Regex Expression:


Hope it helps!!

take the dynamic value which you get before or after the number you need to extract
pass into a variable then use this regex pattern in the place of IPSUM

Hi Thanks for the reply ,

but my question is
how to get the value of the word before the numbers ,
not to get the value of the numbers in this string

thank you for the advice anyway

Hi @StevenIsRobotOnline ,

Maybe you could check with the Below Regex :


Expression :


Debu Panel :


First use this regex to get the value…the first matched value is what you need so use as below and then you can replace all special characters and spaces

[A-Z]*[ \-,]*(?=\d{4})

System.Text.regularExpressions.Regex.Replace(System.Text.regularExpressions.Regex.Match(str,"[A-Z]*[ \-,]*(?=\d{4})").Value,"[^A-Z]","")

[^A-Z] - this takes care of removing extra characters

Hope this helps
