Help with a Regex Pattern

Hello guys,
Thanks for helping again. please i have string that could come in several forms
1.) “TTN000216556880035450088|TRF”
2) “TTN000216556880035450088|TRF FROM MACK”
3) “TTN000216556880035450088”
4) “Transfer from josh TTN000216556880035450088 to jack”
5) “TTN000216556880035450088 0098123 TRANSFER 789121”
I need a regex pattern that could get the string that starts with TTN
which is “TTN000216556880035450088” . This string is the reference and it is what i need . it can be found in any position in a sentence and sometimes the reference might not be separated from the other words by a space , sometimes a special character can be used as a separator. i…e in 2) “TTN000216556880035450088|TRF FROM MACK”

Hi David,

It should start with TTN, That clear, Kindly mention something like Ends with or Number of character it should have.

So that we can frame a RegEx Pattern for it.

Warm Regards,
