Parsing a string containing Japanese characters

7 - Meteor

Hi all,


I have a number of records which contain both English (standard A-Z, 0-9) as well as Japanese characters. Is there any way to parse these strings, removing the Japanese characters and keeping just the English alphanumeric characters?


Many thanks

Hey @jakemancer


You can use RegEx replace to remove any characters that aren't Alpha can also get it to maintain whitespace, full stops, commas etc...
