Using Regular Expressions inside Invoke Code

#1

Hey All,

I’m trying to use a simple Regex search inside an Invoke code block, but I’m not having any luck.
The trouble seems to be in importing the Systems.Text.RegularExpressions namespace inside the code block.

I managed to get it declaring a new Regex variable just fine, but then when I try and pass a value to the variable it says it doesn’t recognize it.

If anyone knows how to do this, would be much appreciated. Thanks

Example:
Dim regexp As System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex
regexp = System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex("(\b\w+\b)\sreport")
Dim m As System.Text.RegularExpressions.Match
m = regexp.Match(row(“Body”).ToString + row(“Subject”).ToString)

Returns:
Message: Error compiling code
error BC30451: ‘Regex’ is not declared. It may be inaccessible due to its protection level. At line 38
System.ArgumentException: Error compiling code
error BC30451: ‘Regex’ is not declared. It may be inaccessible due to its protection level. At line 38

As an extra - I have imported Systems.Text.RegularExpressions into the workflow that holds the invoke code block. That doesn’t appear to be it

Could you upload your workflow. I’d like to see what you did.

Eventually found a solution - Have to import a blank regex and match variable into the Invoke Code Block as arguments. This apparently brings the namespace in with them, and can then be used.
