Hi All,

Need a help to extract the exact integer number from a set of string. In the below example, I want to extract only 7614.
Suggest a regex for the same.

INFO: TB_SEC_FOLDER, 7614 folders

I tried,

$a = 'INFO: TB_SEC_FOLDER, 7614 folders'
$a -replace '\D+(\d+)','$1'

but it will give me output as 7614 folders, it will work if its only $a = 'INFO: TB_SEC_FOLDER, 7614'

$a -replace '^\D+(\d+).*$','$1'

The problem is that it replaces only the regex match, so you have to have the pattern match the whole string.
