Back to specific step


#1

Hello everyone! Is it possible to “go to” to some step backward?
Here the example…
Imagine the following escenario:

  1. Open Web site
  2. Insert login and password
  3. Open the excel fill with many rows… each row has a specific record to work with
  4. Begin loop thought Excel file
    a. Open transaction
    b. Fill some fields with Excel data
    c. Save record
  5. Back to loop again

When everything works properly, that’s ok. But, think in case of some issue (delay to save, or incorrect information to fill the fields, or even robot mal functioning), is it possible to return (go to) to specific step?

This is the reviewed esceneario:

  1. Open Web site
  2. Insert login and password
  3. Open the excel fill with many rows… each row has a specific record to work with
  4. Begin loop thought Excel file
    a. Open transaction
    b. Fill some fields with Excel data
    c. Save record
    d. Check if everything was done properly (record saved) – maybe using a “wait for image” action…
    ** e. If no**
    i. Back to step “a” (begin again), but keep focus on the same Excel row…
  5. Back to loop again

Is it possible to do that?

Thanks!

Hi Trajano,
You cannot go back to a previous step in the recording, but you can use conditions and other loops inside the loop to perform the action till certain criteria are met.
