Extract timestamp from text field

Hi All,

 

I am trying to achieve a small requirement, where in I have a text column which stores the comments of users. 

 

The comment column contains : Timestamp User name and comment and there can be multiple comments in that text field added by different users.

 

So, i want to extract the latest comment timestamp and check whether that timestamp is older than a week.

How can i achieve this condition.


My data source is SharePoint.

 

Thank you in advance!

Cheers.

Hi @Anonymous :

Please try this code:

Last(Sort(AddColumns(Split(
    "RV - 13/01/2021 10:26 - Comments.
     JM - 14/01/2021 15:43 - ",
    Char(13)
),"Thedate",DateValue(Match(Result,"\d\d\/\d\d\/\d\d\d\d").FullMatch,"bg-BG")),Thedate,Ascending)).Thedate

 Best Regards,

Bof

@v-bofeng-msft i was able to extract the last comment based upon the below formula, how do i extract the last date column as it is in the middle and not at first or last. First and last value are easily retrieved by First and last function. I use the separator as "-" and not char(13)
any suggestions?
