Split String and delete help

hi, I need to split a string in Flow at the 6th '/' and delete everything after that, keeping everying before that. 

 

e.g.  i have a string such as this  https://mysharepount.sharepoint.com/sites/SA/SalesOrders/015300%20to%20015399/015328/Folder%20for%20...

 

and i want to delete everything from the word "Folder" onwards, leaving everyting before it 

 

any help would be much appreciated

Hi @StephenM,

 

Do you want to keep everything before “Folder”?

 

Please take the following code for a reference.

 

In Compose, use the function lastIndexOf to return the ending position of the string.

lastIndexOf(triggerBody()['text'],'Folder')

 

In Compose2, use the following code to remove the characters after the “Folder”.

substring(triggerBody()['text'],0,add(outputs('Compose'),6))

The Output of Compose 2 is:

https://mysharepount.sharepoint.com/sites/SA/SalesOrders/015300%20to%20015399/015328/Folder

 

Please take it for a reference and try it on your side.
