Hi all


I want to extract out certain information from the body of an email.




Morning, Please can you Invoice the following days for WE 10 12 17 -  5 Days at a rate of £36 per hour


Output I would like


Weekending - 101217

Days - 5

Rate - 36


I can parse out numbers using RegEx but I need to know how to say:


Numbers appear after WE therefore these are the weekending numbers

5  appears before Days so associated with days

35 is next to £ therefore monetary




10 - Fireball

See attached a solution. I used three Regex tools so it's easier to understand but it's possible to do this into one. Created in v11.7Screen Shot 2017-12-14 at 10.34.02.png
