How about using regular expressions to transform or extract text?

I’d like to do a Edit on the string.
How about using regex to remove text?

2.Remove “^(\w{3})\s” from all Lines

Results in(Variables-List)
Personnel Department
General Affairs Department

Isn’t there a good method for that?

Hi @Moriya_akira

You can do it with the combination of Text actions and a Custom script:

  1. After copying the text to clipboard, remove the text after the first “Department” and berfore "Office"using Substring Between

  2. Trim Whitespace to remove new line symbols

  3. Remove the required text using Custom action


input = ['text_original'],
output = 'text_new'

def customScript() {

text_new = text_original.replaceAllByRegex('[A-Z]{2}\\d{1}\\s',"");

  1. Split the string in a List.

The result will be a list of departments

I was able to do what I thought.
Thank you!
