$t1 is a variable. If it doesn't contain the right id value, the regex won't work.

I'd rather do the following instead:

my %fmt = $member_styles -> contents =~ /\bnumFmtId="(\d+)"\s+formatCo +de="([^"]*)/g; my $formatCode = $fmt{$t1} || ''
and this also gives you a chance to inspect which format codes it does recognize.

    thanks bart - I was able to determine that it is not working for format ids 43, 168 and 169 - and yes, I do recognize, that if 't1' does not resolve to a value in the data, regex extraction would fail - my question was mostly - why doesnt this seemingly correct regex -

    <numFmts count="7"> <numFmt numFmtId="43" formatCode="_(* #,##0.00_);_(* \(#,##0.00\);_(* +&quot;-&quot;??_);_(@_)"/> <numFmt numFmtId="164" formatCode="[$-409]h:mm\ AM/PM;@"/> <numFmt numFmtId="165" formatCode="m/d;@"/> <numFmt numFmtId="166" formatCode="ddd\ mm/dd/yy"/> <numFmt numFmtId="167" formatCode="0.0%"/> <numFmt numFmtId="168" formatCode="&quot;$&quot;#,##0.00"/> <numFmt numFmtId="169" formatCode="m/d/yy;@"/></numFmts>
    $member_styles -> contents =~ /numFmtId="$t1" formatCode="([^"]*)/; my $formatCode = $1 || '';
    I will give your regex a try and report back though - thanks again
