Splitting dynamic text strings with XML tags

Question asked by naydinreynolds on Aug 1, 2017

I asked this question in GeoNet Help but Adrian Welsh  suggested that may be it should  posted here. Below is my original question:


Is there a way to extract parts of text from a dynamic text using xml tags? What I would like to do is to extract the number from an mxd file name and write it to a text box inside arcmap which is the caption. Example:

filename: Fig_3_Test.mxd

caption: <dyn type="document" property="name" split text start =3 end = 5/>


Thanks in advance
