Email parsing



I just happened to know about the amazing capabilities of MS power automate including parsing emails.


I’m looking for parsing the email below and then export the content to an excel sheet. I tried to follow a few examples in the community but failed to apply the same on my own case.


below is the form of the email - which I received frequently- I want to parse.


The following records have been updated in your Reports card:

Audited Financial Report VI (due 6/30/2024) Status: Report Received (1/13/2020)

Grant GG-1712-14986 - xxxxxxx





The fields in red are ones that I’m trying to capture systematic in an excel sheet.


Thanks in advance!

Hi @Abdulbari,


There are expressions on how to extract these properties from the Email Body one by one:

split(split(outputs('Compose'),'(due ')[1],') Status')[0]


split(split(outputs('Compose'),'Status: ')[1],'(')[0]



Grant GG:

split(outputs('Compose'),'Grant GG-')[1]
