Your workflow does not have the html preloaded so it’s difficult to see what you’re doing and what the data looks like.

Here is the screenshot of my html file

hi @mythxAHIR ,
this result is a “proxy”, I know, but you only have to type in some headings and format number cells in order to complete it

Here’s the workflow

( I’m sorry to tell you, but all the strings are perfectly visible in your workflow - and in mine)

Hope it helps

Thanks Buddy.
It’s working.
Thanks for help.

It’s Working but want to know about your some code can you explain me.

1).Regex Extractor
^(\d+) ([A-Z 0-9]+?) (\d+) (\d+) (\d+) (\d+) (\d+) (\d+) (\d+) (\d+).*$

2). String Manipulation
strip(regexReplace($row$, “[\u202F\u00A0]+”," "))

Can you please explain me both line.

  1. this pattern matches a data row:
    (\d+) = a group of one or more digits
    ([A-Z 0-9]+?) = a group of blanks or alpha chars or digits

In the context of the “Regex Extractor” this pattern captures exactly 10 groups of data. If you just want to match a data row, as in the “Rule-based Row Splitter” node, you can use a simpler pattern: “^\d{8}.*?( \d+){8}$” = 8 digits followed by zero or more chars followed by 8 groups consisting in one space and one or more digits each

  1. XPath returns strings encoded in utf8 and filled with non-breaking spaces, which cannot be easily removed or replaced. The pattern “[\u202F\u00A0]” matches two kinds of unicode non-breaking spaces and the regex replaces every group of them with a single space. “strip” removes trailing and leading spaces, so in the end we have a string with no repeating spaces

As an alternative to this strategy, you could use a “Cell Splitter by Position” node, at least on the data rows, but it’s really boring


Buddy it helped me a lot.
