How do we use regex based extractor to work on text extracted by form extractor in UiPath?

Hi All ,
How do we use form extractor and regex based extractor together to streamline our extraction results. For eg: if my form extractor is giving me the text new delhi, for a particular field and i want only new delhi and want to remove the comma using regex extractor can i do it. Can the regex extractor work on the text extracted already by form extractor or do i need to do something else? Kindly suggest.

Hi @shetanshudhar
From what I understand the form extractor and regex extractor are run as two separate entities.
You set the confidence level on one and if the is not met then it tries the next one.
I don’t think there is a way of using the data from the form extractor in the reg ex extractor.
What I do is export the data from the Digitize document activity into a text file and then use this in the regex extractor to identify the values I want.

Hope this helps

I do agree if there is a function to combine the form extractor with a regex filter would greatly improve the overall efficiency of extraction and validation, as it always capture things like commas and colons.
