ThisItem - Show text before a number or symbol @

Hi I have a datatable with a column called Employee Name, currently this pulls through a text value in the form of an email address from a SharePoint list using ThisItem.'Employee Name'

 

I'm trying to see if I can pull through the characters before the @ symbol or number i.e.

 

If the text is "Fred.Bloggs@Global.com" I want to just see "Fred.Bloggs" and

If the text is "Fred.Bloggs2@Global.com" I want to just see "Fred.Bloggs" the number could be 1 through to 9.

 

Also could the fullstop being replaced with a space?

 

Any ideas appreciated.

 

Newbeetle.

Hi @newbeetle ,

To get the email address with a space and removing the last character you would do this

With(
   {wMail:YourEmailText},
   Substitute(
      Left(
         wMail,
         Find(
            "@",
            wMail
         )-2
      ),
      ".",
      " "
   )
)
