Parsing an email with a changing url

Hey All!


I'm currently working on a multi level approval workflow where we are parsing out an email and taking the information to passthrough to a quote approval request formatted email to get approved. Below you will find the structure of the email. My biggest hiccup currently is related to the link that follows "Please click to open quote attachment". A requestor can add any number of file types for the customer to review as supporting documentation for the quote. Because the last part of the url will change based on the file name, I find myself at a loss as to the best way to parse it out without throwing an error. Additionally, if the user does not attached supporting documents, that verbiage and url are not there in the email at all. This is the current expression I have, but I know that it will eventually throw an error. the replace '-' with '' is to accomodate the posibility of a signature line that's embedded into our email when we send. Which also may or may not happen. Any recommendations? I have put "x" for confidentiality but the character count is accurate. 


Email output to be parsed:

Quote#: 1234

Quote Amt: 10.00

BU#: 1234567

Customer Email:

Originator Email:



Please click to open quote attachment

I actually ended up using the split() and first() functions to get my result. Works much better now!

Hi there!  I had a similar requirement and chose to use a third-party tool.  There are a few out there, but the one I chose was Parserr and they have a free plan.  Might be worth checking out.


Keep us posted.
