How to extract a string using regex?

New Member

Hello all,

I am trying to write a regex to extract a string out an interesting field that I have already created and wanted to extract a string out by using regex.
I created a table that displays 4 different columns and from one of the column, I want to extract out "Message accepted for delivery" and put it into a new column. is there a way to do that. Much appreciate it.

Can you show us one sample line of your table and tell us exactly what you want to extract please?

You sure can. But before I get into it, here's a site that can help with your regex expression extractions:
https://regex101.com/
It would be better if you supplied the whole string in the field containing "Message accepted for delivery", as well as your search, as I can better answer this question with those provided, but this rex should do the trick:

yoursearch | rex field=fieldContainingYourMessage "(?<Message1>Message accepted for delivery)"

What the search above will do will provide you with a new field called Message1 and the content/values will be "Message accepted for delivery"
