in thread extract the value before a particualr string

Hi,
with ...(\d{5})... in your regexp, you will only have 57852 instead of 457852 for the first value, since the digits are more that 5.
Maybe ...(\d{5,})... could help in this case. Or other variation in case the targeted digits are less than 5.

If you tell me, I'll forget.
If you show me, I'll remember.
if you involve me, I'll understand.
