Remove text before a word

I’m trying to remove everything in a sentence that comes before a certain word. Problem is it’s random except for the word I’m trying to keep. Example: “Hello World 403 !It’s Me IMPORTANT” and I want to keep only IMPORTANT.

Hey

You can use Regex to achieve this! Try using this link to preview/play with the result.

In UiPath Studio - use an Assign activity like this.
Str_Variable = System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex.Replace(YOURINPUTSTRING, “[\s\S]*(?=IMPORTANT)”, “”)

GIve it a go :slight_smile:

Hi again

If you want to match only text on the same line prior to “IMPORTANT” then you could use:

.*(?=IMPORTANT)
