Hello @Abdalla,

Can you try this expression?

((VAT Registration Number)[A-Z]{2}\d{10}|(VAT Registration Number)[A-Z]{2}\d{9}[A-Z]{1}\d{2})

try here!1




How about the following expression?

System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex.Matches(text,"VAT Registration Number[A-Z]{2}[A-Z0-9]+\d")

If you wanted a third option :slight_smile:

Try this pattern:

(?<=VAT Registration Number)[A-Z]{2}[A-Z\d]+(?=Tax)
