qr value has uknown character

Hello i have a app with qr scanner. The value i am getting has a strange character at the end (). Possible to trim the string to exclude that character if it exist ?

Hi @langsem 

If there are bracket characters at the end of your string, you can call the substitute function to replace them with an empty string.

Substitute("0000522715()", "()","")


hi thx for repsonse, i am using this function on the label that displayes the qr scanned value. First(Match(BarcodeScanner1.Value;"FORSIKRING:(.+)JOBB:";MatchOptions.Contains).SubMatches).Value

If you wrap your formula inside a call to substitute, does that take you any further?

           First(Match(BarcodeScanner1.Value;"FORSIKRING: (.+)JOBB:";MatchOptions.Contains).SubMatches).Value, 

still gives me the character :S, the thing its that i have a qr code that has 4values in one entire line. So i am splitting the line to draw out the value i need, so think that the unknown character its the split itself or something ? 

i checked the string it sends : 

{"name":"Registrerings_nummer","value":"EB40058\u001d"},{"name":"ServiceOrdre_Nummer","value":"0000522715\u001d"},{"name":"Forsikringsselskap","value":"IF SKADEFORSIKRING\u001d"}

see that \u001d, dont know what that its also why  is it there 

is it possible in power automate to check if the variable contains \u0001d then remove it ?
