Hi Kenda,

 

I understand what you in the Formula tool, but don't understand the syntax of the following line "REGEX_Replace([Users], ".*\s(.*?)\d+", "$1")"

Can you please explain this or tell me where I can teach myself about this syntx.

 

Many Thx,

 

Johan

Regex

Match
([[:alpha:]]{1}).*\s([[:alpha:]]*)


Replace
\u$1$2@testemail.com

\u will uppercase next character, \U will uppercase whole match
