How to put end of length to another text

sd.xaml (8.5 KB)
Above is my proj. In it, I am trying to get text ‘A’ text position and output the rest of words after the ‘A’. However, in extract.Substring(extractPos + “810589-AAB”.Length), it gets like 100 words after it, Thus, I want to set another text as B and get all the words in between A and B. How can I go about it?

Try to use Split activity.
You will get “AAB”

Hi maybe I wasn’t very clear with my question.
For example below is my extract text. I want to get the words in between from the first text “S10589-AAB” to another text “Weekly/Monthly File”. But when i do .Length it just gives me all the text following. I only want till another text. How can i go about it?

O S10589-AAB Apple Innc

Hi it works thanks but however, instead of returning 10 lines, It only return like 2 or 3 lines at the top even though the ‘(Weekly/Monthly File)’ text is below

@sangasangasanga u can split the string wrt newline and then u can write required number of lines anywhere u want.

Oh i see. How do you split the string by newline. Is it like split.(" ")

@sangasangasanga use any of the methods for splitting text wrt newline



Split(Urvariable, Environment.Newline)

You can use regular expression to using space count.

@Manjuts90 Hey I tried implementing youways not working exactly how i want it to be
s = extract.Split({“10589-AAB”,“G BR1 Data Backup (Weekly/Monthly File)”},StringSplitOptions.None)(1)
lack of lines
pos = extract.IndexOf(“G-Cloud S10589-AAB”)
txt = extract.substring(pos + "G-Cloud S10589-AAB).length)
txt2 = txt.split({Environment.Newline},StringSplitOptions.None)
txt2.toString - message box
not sure as output is System.string

@bagishojha Hi, how may I go about doing that?

@sangasangasanga In your example txt2 is array, u can’t display array like string.

@Manjuts90 Any other ways for me to double check the array?


I didn’t get you?

I am trying to split by the new lines then limit it to 12 lines only. I want to display it to make sure it is correct

@sangasangasanga if u want to display the lines use loop.

firstly use a array string

store your string into a array string variable
use that variable and start a loop

start to end string

manipulate your string
using regular expression and split with environment.newline



@Manjuts90 @bagishojha

I want to find the text “S10589-AAB” and get the following texts till “total for s10589-AAB”. which is about 12 lines. However, as the output only returns 3 random lines from there. I want to specify to get the first text that matches the text.
I attached my codes and pdf file so maybe it is easier for yall to get what i am saying.
