    After saving an order in my web application a pop up box comes up with text and the order number.

    I need a way to parse the text so the variable saved from the extraction is only the order number.

    (I have visual studio also so if i need to do it there I can).

    Hello Austin,

    This can be done in a Coded Step. You'll reference the extracted variable in code, convert it to a string, and use the String.Substring Method to trim it. (That method is basic .NET code and not specific to Test Studio.)

    Here's an example:

    object webTime = GetExtractedValue("Time");
    string extractMe = webTime.ToString();
    Log.WriteLine(extractMe);
     
    int n = extractMe.IndexOf("at ") + 3;
    extractMe = extractMe.Substring(n);
    Log.WriteLine(extractMe);

    And the resulting log:
