Hi,

Is there anybody that can provide me with the Action Flow to perform the following task:

I have a ready list of URL on Excel,

  1. Enter browser
  2. Go to URL
  3. Ctrl + f “apple”
  4. Need help with this part: If yes - meaning the word “Apple” is on the page, then go to excel and select Apple
  5. Need help with this part: If no - meaning the word “Apple” is not on the page, then go to excel, leave the space blank
  6. Continue to the next URL

This is a simple task, but I am having trouble automating this. Thank you for helping, I really appreciate whoever is helping me here.

Regards,
Xin Lerk

@xinlerk.tan please post here your sample recording and tell us where are you stuck.

To find a substring “Apple” you can use our text actions:

Hi Azinchuk,

Thank you for getting back so promptly. I have messaged you privately for the sample recording.

As for substring “Apple”, I need to add ‘Conditions’ after searching for the keyword, so that RPA will know to select some information on my Excel sheet.

Hi Sasha, it does not really help in my situation of finding a word on a webpage, and performing an action if a specific word is present.

  1. You can send CTRL + A to a web page
  2. CTRL + C
  3. Clipboard to String variable, e.g. ${website_text}
  4. Use Text action on the ${website_text} variable
