Subtracting 2 variables

my example involves a bunch of text then inventory matches = 1909 reset screen


i am trying to grab subtext from text (1909),


i am currently using ParseText to find text "inventory matches = ", then another ParseText to find another text "reset screen"


"inventory matches = " has 20 characters.


So i want to subtract %variable2% - (%variable1% + 20) in order to grab the 1909 value.  But i cant subtract variables or add a numerical value to variable


what is proper way?  thanks

1. Arithmetic Set %var_3% = %var_2 - var_1% 2. Regex (?<=inventory matches =\s+)\d+

Hi Jon


I would do this one with Regular Expressions.


First, one that looks for the complete sentence. Then, one that identifies the number.


Check out the attached process.
