Maestro purchase 21.02.2019 07:36 VBZ FRANKENTAL Card number: 79111775  

I'd like to have one function that returns a list of all unique occurrences based on this rule:

IF the string starts with Maestro extract the string in between the first 34 chars and the last 22

[34 chars] "String to be extracted" [22 chars]

IF the string does not start with Maestro, then get the full string.

I was able to extract the strings based on the rule above with this function IFERROR(MID(A2,35,LEN(A2)-56),A2) but somehow I got stuck because I might have to wrap everything in an array formula or something.

If it helps here's a spreadsheet with the data:

=UNIQUE(ARRAYFORMULA(REGEXREPLACE(A2:A, 
 "Maestro purchase \d+.\d+.\d+ \d+:\d+ | Card number: \d+", "")))
