RegEx: Extact keywords from document

Hi,

I did a data scraping and I now have to extract some keywords in a document. Each of my keywords is in between two minus signs.

Below is an example of it:

The yellow parts are what I need to extract. Can someone please help using RegEx?I have provided the texts below. Thanks!

Hi @Yudhisteer_Chintaram1

(-(.)*(?=-)|(?<=⁃ )(.)*(?=⁃))
Thanks,

Thanks! But it is scraping more than what I need:

HI @Yudhisteer_Chintaram1

Can you share your expected output if possible?

(Whether you need that complete sentence or separate words)

@Yudhisteer_Chintaram1

  1. use below regex
    (fit-(.)(?=-)|(?<=⁃ )(.)(?=⁃))

  2. then in for each loop of regular expression output
    split the string with β€œ-”

  3. store the required results as per your need.

for testing you could use https://regex101.com/

let me know if you need any further help.

thanks @Robinnavinraj_S

Hi @Sudharsan_AIT,

Only the highlighted words. Thanks!

Hi @rahatadi ,

This one works! But I could not understand your loop workflow. Can you help please?

  1. use below regex
    (fit-(.) (?=-)|(?<=⁃ )(.) (?=⁃))
  2. then in for each loop of regular expression output
    split the string with β€œ-”
  3. store the required results as per your need.

it is simple thing to extract words between the dashes.

i thought the you are receiving all text at once but later i found that those are separate texts.

you may not need those flow

They are only independent texts:

Hi @Yudhisteer_Chintaram1

Try this remove fit from the regex β€œ(-(.)(?=-)|(?<=⁃ )(.)(?=⁃))”
So that you will get - Muscle also but it will get you another unwanted lines as well

As suggested loop through the β€œ-” if the value length is more than 20
go to other lines

Hope this helps
