I have a string input of “last name, first name” and i would like the string output of just the last name by using regex. Any help developing the regex help would be great
You can get it using the following sentence.
I was testing it on the online regex tester and it doesn’t seem to work? if i am using the matches activity would the pattern just be “^.*(?=,)”
You can split it based on the comma. It’s simplest one.
str = “last name, first name” requiredStr = str.Split(","c)(0)
Which online tester site do you use?
You can easily check using Write Line Activity if it works good.
System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex.Match("last name, first name", "^.*(?=,)").ToString
