I'd split the string into an array and the last array item - your number.

        private void button2_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            string pattern = @"SAQ212QQQQ | Bagoong Factory | 10";
            char[] chs = {'|'};

            string[] items = pattern.Split(chs);
           
            System.Diagnostics.Debug.WriteLine("This is your number: " + items[2]);
        }

Open in new window


Output:

This is your number:  10

Hi  JimiJ13;

This will do what you want.

// Test Data
string data = "SAQ212QQQQ | Bagoong Factory | 10";
// The variable ten now has the value "10"
string ten = data.Substring(data.LastIndexOf('|') + 1).Trim();
