It’s great to see replies so fast on your 1st topic.

You can use Regex to achieve what you are asking.

Take a look at my Regex MegaPost to learn Regex




Thank you for the solution, but I cant use regex, I have to use assign activity only

Hi @Ruchi ,

You can use the above mentioned expression in the assign activity, keep the string variable in the left side of the assign and the regex expression in the right side. The values will be stored in your string variable.


It worked!

Thank you so much for the help!!
Also, could you please suggest a regex generator online, where I can enter mu statement as input and get the output from the generator directly, since I am new to regex

Hey @Ruchi

Use to help you learn Regex and for basic patterns.

Then use .NET Regex Tester - Regex Storm for more advanced Regex patterns in the future and 100% compatibility with UiPath.
