Re: text extraction from template

Hi @ Sapje,

 

Could you please share more details about your requirement?

Could you please explain more about extracts text from defined places on a sheet? Do you mean extract text from the column of the excel?

If you want to extract text from the column of the excel,could you please share an example about want you would like to 

extract from the column of the excel?

 

I would share an example about if I would get the date such as "20180406" in the value of a column such as "start time:20180406" in the excel:

You could refer to screenshot below to create the flow:

The expression in the compose as below:

first(skip(split(items('Apply_to_each')?['start_x0020_time'],':'),1))

 

The flow would run successfully to get the date such as "20180406" in the value of a column such as "start time:20180406" in the excel as below:

Hi Alice,

Thanks for your reaction.

I have paper forms with handwritten text. I like to scan and retrieve the written text from the paper sheets.

And put the text in a table.

 

Cheers Christiaan
