Response from Forms - filter without Numbers

Hi all,

 

I am new to flow and powerapps - here my current flow:

 

The answer to one of my questions in the form looks as follows:

 

12345 John Johnson

 

So it pretty much is a number and first and last name.

 

Once the approval is given the next step in my flow is to send a specific mail using send an e-mail v2. In the body of the E-Mail I want to be able to enter the response of the questions I mention above,however without the numbers so that it leaves only the names.


Is this possible?

 

Thanks!

Sure you can. You need to add a function that split your answer like this

As you can see in this example in the first compose I've your answer and in the second the function.

HI again,

 

I have managed to do this using the info from this :

 

https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Building-Flows/extract-s-string-between-two-characters/td-p/8083...

 

however now what I need to do is to get the value before the space , so in the example from the previous post I want to get just 12345 displayed.

 

Can anyone help me?

look up using the function split, and then just use the first item returned in the array.

Thanks a lot for the response - however can you please advise what should I put in the first compose? As I am unable to get the desired result.

 

Thanks!
