Matches dosnt return value - regular expression

I have made the following matches acitivity, but it dosnt return the value shown in the picture.

Hey @eltmo sometimes the regex builder may not work. Please try regex using the assign activity.
It may help you.
Thanks and Regards.

The acitivity works fine everywhere else?

Please try the below regex

“(?<=Lastname)[\s]+(.)*(?=()”

Replace the space and Navn value using the trim method and replace method.

I think u misunderstand, i did have a regular expression, that “works” but uipath just dosnt return the value…

Can you try this regex using the assign activity instead of using the Regex Builder…

How do i do that? :slight_smile:

Hey!

Try this…

Replace:

Name = strinput.Replace(" ","")

RegEx:

System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex.Match(Name,"(?<=nameNavn).*").ToString

RegEx Reference:

System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex.Match(strInput,“(?<=Lastname)[\s]+(.)*(?=()”).tostring

hi there,

to make things easier, first you can develop a regex rule using https://regex-generator.olafneumann.org/

Second you can validate using https://regex101.com/

this makes sure you’re creating the right regex rules.

Apparently, UIpath wouldnt work with ) in the regex…

feel free to open a new topic on this
