Substring Issue


From the below string i need to find the Value of EMCF with Substring. Can anyone help??

name=“EMCF”><link rel=“field” href=“awdServer/awd/services/v1/fields/EMCF” type=“application/vnd.dsttechnologies.awd+xml”/>Test Value

href=“awdServer/awd/services/v1/fields/AMTV” type=“application/vnd.dsttechnologies.awd+xml”/>0.0000<fieldValue description=“Tax ID” name=“SSNO”><link rel=“field”


Hi @Sonam_Nagpal,

Are you trying to match EMCF exactly? You could use a Regex pattern to match that:

Or if you are trying to match the 4-character upper case codes, you can do that with Regex too:

Edit: If substring isn’t a necessity then this would be an alternative to that. If substring is necessary then @fernando_zuluaga’s solution would work, trusting the format doesn’t change

hi @Sonam_Nagpal

if your position will never change you can try with that

and correct your expresion with the double " like that

str_Path = “name=”“EMCF”"><link rel="“field”" href="“awdServer/awd/services/v1/fields/EMCF”" type="“application/vnd.dsttechnologies.awd+xml”"/>Test Value href="“awdServer/awd/services/v1/fields/AMTV”" type="“application/vnd.dsttechnologies.awd+xml”"/>0.0000<fieldValue description="“Tax ID”" name="“SSNO”"><link rel="“ield”""

best regards

In which i need result “Test value” when i will check for EMCF.

Try it:

myValue = System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex.Match(myTxt,"name=""EMCF"">.+>(.+)<\/value>").Groups(1).ToString

(try, because you are showing a parsed text with double quotes scaped by slash)

myValue = System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex.Match(myTxt,"name=\""EMCF\"">.+>(.+)<\/value>").Groups(1).ToString


Thanks for your help, The RegularExpression you have shared giving me the last value “123456789” in my data. But i need result as “Test Value”. When i will check for EMCF i need first value

Can u plz check??
