Hi, I have above text which is assigned to StringVar(SubstringValue), I want only “QA Analyst” and remove remaining entry.
Used, Desgination = Substringvalue.Split(vblf)(0)
Receiving Error : Options Strict disallows function from ‘String’ to ‘Char’
Any help much appreciated.

If StringVar contains the above text, use StringVar.Split(New String() {Environment.Newline}, StringSplitOptions.None)(0).

[quote=“Anthony_Humphries, post:2, topic:231292”]
StringVar.Split(New String() {Environment.Newline}, StringSplitOptions.None)(0) .

Thank you very much, It worked. another question, how can i learn this string manipuation, already learned by Uipath academy but covers only basic. Any website, blog or online tutorials suggestion would be very helpful.

The academy training teaches a lot of the string manipulation tricks you’ll need. This one is a bit special, and can be adapted to allow you to split on entire strings, rather than single characters.

Honestly, a lot of it is searching for what you need. In this case, I got the solution from https://stackoverflow.com/questions/14795943/how-to-split-new-line-in-string-in-vb-net .

But the most powerful tool for string manipulation is the use of Regexes. There’s a lot on Regexes at rexegg.com, and a tool for testing regular expressions at regex101.com.
