    Hi @gbennett

    You could utilize a Magic ETL dataflow and a Replace Text tile in combination with a regular expression. It will keep the original value if it doesn't find a valid email address.

    Here's a regular expression which will find an email within a string.

    (\b[A-Z0-9._%+-][email protected][A-Z0-9.-]+\.[A-Z]{2,}\b)

    You can copy and paste the following code into a Magic ETL dataflow which will automatically populate the replace text tile for you:

    {"contentType":"domo/dataflow-actions","data":[{"name":"Replace Text","id":"f04511d9-2fee-4a8b-909f-cf65b6622b8f","type":"ReplaceString","gui":{"x":252,"y":120},"dependsOn":["75646ce3-bee8-4d31-82ca-46451cf82eab"],"removeByDefault":false,"notes":[],"fields":[{"inStreamName":"Column","useRegex":true,"replaceString":"^.*(\\b[A-Z0-9._%+-][email protected][A-Z0-9.-]+\\.[A-Z]{2,}\\b).*$","replaceByString":"$1","wholeWord":false,"caseSensitive":false}]}]}
