Hello,

Pls would you advise in this case? In description there is string which contains a date in format "dd.mm.yyyy", I am trying to extract it .

$mailbox = Get-QADUser -Enabled 'xxx' -IncludedProperties name,description,accountexpires

$test = $mailbox | if ($_.description -ne $null){ [regex]::Match($_.description,"\d{2}\W\d{2}\W\d{4}")}
