Extracting a specific part of a string of text

Hello,

 

I have a random string of text that I've converted from HTML to Text. I need to create an expression that pulls the 8 characters after the word Request Number: . The part that is tricky is that it is not always predicable what will be within the body of the email, but the Request number will always be right after the colon.

Timely question.  Check out the Flow of the Week that came out today.  You could use the Split() function, and split on 'Request Number: ' and then split the second element on whatever comes after the number (space?).

 

Keep us posted.
