Newb in KNIME - FIND, EXTRACT AND PUT IN A NEW COLUMN specific words in a cell

Hello, KNIME Newb here. I am transposing a formula in excel and migrating to kKNIMEnime. Below is the screenshot of my formula which basically, looks upon specific words in a Column containing long sentences.


  1. Nodes/Combination needed to migrate it to Knime

I appreciate your help.
Thanks, Maribeth

The “LIKE” function of the Rule Engine node will help you accomplish this.
Just create a rule for each keyword search, and list them in the order in which you want them applied.
An example rule would be:

$GL Journal Line Description$ LIKE "*Proquest*" => "Proquest"


Thank you very much! IT WORKED! :slight_smile: :grinning:
