Parsing outlook subject

HI,

 

Saw several examples on the site, but none get me all the way to my solution and need

some help. 

 

I need to extract a 10 digit phone number in the subject , that immediatly follows the number (character)  1.  (see example below)

The callers name will vary in length, so I cannot count characters as my starting point.

 

  • I have a flow with a variable initialized as SUBJECT
  • Next I compose  split(triggerBody()?['Subject'],'1')
  • Finally, setting a variable as the output.  

 

New voicemail from Unavailable 19198012607*text blah blah variable length blah blah 

 

Any ideas on grabbing the 10 characters after the '1' ?

 

Thanks!
