BENEFICIARY'S PROFORMA INVOICE NO. SE
22200015 DATED: 19/01/2022

 

Due to line break or paragraph , Parse Text unable to give position of text.

Kindly advise how i will get the text position of  SE 22200015

Im still on my learn path re regex.

But you could do it twice, positive look ahead for the BENEFICIARY'S PROFORMA INVOICE NO. SE

Positive look behind for the 22200015 DATED: 19/01/2022.

Then you have 2 separate variables to do whatever.

I thought regex new line was /n

I tried but it is not working.

advised if another solution is there?

 

1). Am I correct that the trigger is “Beneficiary’s ProForma Invoice No.”?

 

2.  Is the 2nd row’s first 8 digits always what you are looking for?

 

3.  Is the Alpha characters on the right side of row one always 2 characters?

 

If so, you should have all the text in a list format. If not, then SplitText by new line to convert the text variable to a list variable. 

Now, you can do this:

 

Loop 0 to %List - 1% increment of 1
    If %List[LoopIndex]% = “Beneficiary’s ProForma Invoice No.”

        Get Subtext from %List[LoopIndex]% 

            Starting position:  %List[LoopIndex].Count - 2%

            Ending position:  End of text

            ‘Note:  if you are getting white characters at the end of “SE”, ‘trim text %List[LoopIndex]% of all white characters at the end of text’ before the IF.
        Get Subtext from %List[LoopIndex] + 1%

            Starting position:  start

            # of characters:  8

    End (IF)

End (Loop)

Try this...

 

1st regex

(?<=BENEFICIARY'S\sPROFORMA\sINVOICE\sNO.\s).*

 

2nd regex

.*(?=\sDATED)

 

Output

Use RegExt \s means Space, \n means new line.

I tried in my PAD flows, it worked well.

 

I always use Regex101 to test and validate (No one can remember all those rules 😂).

Or, if SE is not constant but "NO." and "DATED:" are then use positive and negative lookahead to get the value:

If \n does not work in PAD, replace it with \s\s

 

UPDATE

 

Yeah.. PAD still does not understand \n in analyze text action (but it does in replace text action lol), here is working code:

 

SET Text TO $'''BENEFICIARY\'S PROFORMA INVOICE NO. SE
22200015 DATED: 19/01/2022'''
Text.ParseText.RegexParseForFirstOccurrence Text: Text TextToFind: $'''(?!NO\\s)[a-zA-Z]+\\s\\s\\d+(?=\\sDATED:)''' StartingPosition: 0 IgnoreCase: False Match=> Match
Text.Replace Text: Match TextToFind: $'''\\n''' IsRegEx: True IgnoreCase: False ReplaceWith: $'''%''%''' ActivateEscapeSequences: False Result=> Replaced
