This bit of code will help you if you need to extract a certain text or data from a particular string.

Long Description

The main thing to note here, is that the Extract option will only save the results into a Collection variable, even if you know you're only getting one result back.  So you should be aware of this when extracting data.  Although when you look at complex regular expressions, they look daunting, they actually aren't.  You just need to spend a little time playing around with them and maybe running through some tutorials and you'll be well on your way to build awesome business solutions.
