How to get the specific part of the string


Hello All,
In the above expression I need to get the value till third back slash ‘’.
means till xxx.
here string xxx can be any other string
like karan.arora or anything. but the substring as an output should be till the 3rd back slash.

Please help!

Heyy ,

I need output as C:\Users\xxx\ or C:\Users\xxx
I guess your solution is giving me xxx

You can use split method. in above image I am using \ as a separator.

Okay got it i thought you want only xxx. I will share another screenshot

Here i am using yyy as a separator

Hi @Karan28
Use following code in Assign.
System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex.Match(YourStringVariable,".+(?=\\yyy)").ToString .
Assign it to a string Variable.

but the value before third \ can change
like yyy can change
we need to find on the basis of third \ only

@Karan28 Then use a substring


It will only work if C:\Users\xxx\ don’t change

Bro YYY will be constant here sorry , and I have applied it it is giving me this

Hi @Karan28

for the above string you can utilize the below regEx


use matches activity and then you can loop it.


not working bro

Use this Str.Split(cchar("\"))(0)+"\"+Str.Split(cchar("\"))(1).Split(cchar("\"))(0)+"\"+Str.Split(cchar("\"))(2).Split(cchar("\"))(0) or
Use Str.Substring(0,13).
