Find Substring in a String

Hello Community,
I need your help please!
I'm trying to convert some workflows to Power Automate and one thing I have come across where I am not sure how to achieve this in Power Automate,
Find a Substring in a string

ClaireAllen_0-1611228676558.png

The substring is a full stop .

String is a variable of the Version No

Output is Index of period

 

I've configured an Initialize Variable in my Flow

and that's how far I got as I don't know where to start with the Find a Substring in a String, and this is where I need help.

 

Any suggestions / help is much appreciated.

Kind regards

Claire

Use indexOf function.

Thank you @VictorIvanidze 
I've never used IndexOf functions before,

Would you have a screen shots on how something like I am trying to achieve would be configured?

 

Kind regards

Hi @ClaireAllen , just use a link I gave you. The doc contains enough examples.

I did look at the documentation, but if you have never done anything like this before, I does not help!

I'll mark you solution as closed, and try and figure out what I need to do

Hello @v-yuazh-msft 
I'm sending you this, to see if you can help me as I came across your post in 2018 extract substring using compose
I think I am trying to do something similar in my flow, and was wondering if you could give me some guidance on how to achieve this.

Thank you

Claire
