@langsem U can see below thread that will help.

Did look at it, but its working in my case :confused: the thing its that Mo i Rana its name of branch, so i could be something different on another pdf file. It could be Oslo, Kristiandsand, Sandefjord Kilen etc
So need a regex expression that look intbettwen maybe Avdeling and Bank i tried with (?<=Avdeling\s)(.*)(?=nBank) but it gave me blank :confused:

You can use this regex to find those two words that you wanted


If you want regex to look between two words you can use something like this :

Avdeling([\s\S]*?)Bank then select group 1 matching with Assing activity : StringThatYouWant = OutputRegex(0).Groups(1).Value

its almost working, it gives me another line aswell tho :confused:

currently my assign look like this

branch = System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex.Match(PDF_INVOICE_STRING, “(?<=Avdeling)\s\w+”).ToString

That only finds words thats one word like OSLO, Sandefjord etc

So its missing words that contains like 2-3 arrays like Mo i Rana , Sandefjord Kilen etc

Try this once:-

Yes, because there is multiple matches.
When you use Matches Activity in UiPath you can use this Regex expression, and then the output will be in RegularExpression Array, so you need to select first match ( the 0 index)

Hope this helps

no match :confused:

Also, if you have multiple result you can always use For Each to get each element like this :slight_smile:

almost working, the ouput its Mo i Rana\r\n

Yes, because the \r\n is in your text

so a replace \r\n\
would work ?

You can use Replace string method
