in reply to Regex, query

It works for me. Are you sure there is a whitespace after E123456? If you are sure that the REF is the last element in the input, you might want to use a greedy capture instead: change  (.*?) to  (.*)

Alternatively, you could append a whitespace to your input before applying the regex ($reqtext .= " "; )

HTH, Rata

    Thanks. adding the whitespace at the end did the trick.
