Searching for variables in the text file

Searching for variables in the text file

There is a task of searching for variables in a text file.


The text file has the following contents:

Example

 

Sectiondocument=Payment order
Payer= Example
Payer's account= Example2
Payer's bank = Example3
Payee's account= Example4
Published data= 27/10/2021
Recipient = Example5
Payment type= electronic
Payment type =01
Purpose of payment = Example6
End of the document
Sectiondocument=Payment order
Payer= Example11
Payer's account = Example22
Payer's bank = Example33
Payee's account = Example 44
Published data= 27/10/2021
Recipient = Example55
Payment type= electronic
Payment type =01
Purpose of payment = Example66
End of the document
Sectiondocument=Payment order
Payer= Example111
Payer's account= Example222
Payer's bank= Example333
Payee's account= Example444
Published data= 27/10/2021
Recipient = Example555
Payment type= electronic
Payment type =01
Purpose of payment = Example666
End of the document
End of File


It is necessary to select all the values of "Payer=" from this text file.

But I ran into a problem, I find the first value, and then I don't understand how to continue (loop) the search?


To search, I use a flow of the following type:

golenya_ap_0-1635837704489.png

 


To extract the text, I use the function:
split(split(triggerOutputs()?['body'],'Payer=')[1],'Payer's account=')[0]


Next, I write the search results to a table on sharepoint.


I find the first value(Example), and then I don't understand how to continue (loop) the search next value(Example11,Example111)?


Tell me what needs to be adjusted in the PA flow to make a loop search through a text file all values?

This will do what you want without any loops:

The final output is an array with the contents:

[
  "Payer= Example",
  "Payer= Example11",
  "Payer= Example111"
]

Let me know if you need any further guidance.

Thank you so much for your reply!

There are a couple more questions.

 

How to specify the parameters correctly: split(outputs('Compose'),decodeUriComponent('%0D%0A'))?

I work with Russian text.

And after processing I get the following:

[
  "Payer=ООО \"Техно1\"",
  "Payer=ООО \"Техно2\"",
  "Payer=АО \"Техно3\" филиал г. Уфа"
]

How can I remove the "\" sign from the selection?

And perhaps a completely stupid question.

How to organize the recording of this data in the list on sharepoint?

 

 

 

 

 

 

You don't need to remove the \ from the output. This is because the double quotes are being escaped within the JSON array. If you use the results of the filter array for the input of an apply to each within the apply to each each item will be available for you to use to create items etc. Then you can perform operations such as Create Item etc.

I don't understand how to use the results of "filter array" further in "apply to each"?

Could you please explain.

Hi @golenya_ap,

Thank you, you've been very helpful!

I apologize for possibly stupid questions.

We are just mastering this tool.

Tell me how to organize the recording of several variables of the data array on sharepoint?

 

The problem of finding one variable is solved above.

 

golenya_ap_0-1636973077230.png

 

split(split(outputs('Compose_4'),'Payer=')[1],'Payer's account =')[0]
 

However, having started duplicating the method to other data, I was faced with the question of how to write them correctly on sharepoint?

 

golenya_ap_1-1636973249876.png

split(split(outputs('Compose_7'),'Payer's account =')[1],'Payer's bank =')[0]
 

With such a construction scheme, on sharepoint, only one, the last value of the array, is written in all lines.

Can you tell me where I am wrong when organizing a cycle?

Can anyone help me solve this issue to the end?

I understand that this question can be quite simple and stupid.

However, how to finally solve it, I don't see any exits.

Can you tell me where I am wrong when organizing a cycle?

 

Tell me how to organize the recording of several variables of the data array on sharepoint?

Can someone explain what the error is when organizing the cycle? Why are the second and subsequent values written on sharepoint in a different order?

I find the first value of the variable and write it to a table on sharepoint.

Then I repeat the search cycle, find the second variable, and based on the previously recorded data in sharepoint, I try to write it.

The recording is happening, but for some reason not in the required order.
Conditionally, variable B3 is written to string the variable A1, A2-B1, etc.

 

Below is an example of flow data:
