Hi,

I’m trying to select the first entry in an online salesforce table, it must always be the first entry but the entries constantly change so I don’t think I can use the xpaths. Does anyone know how to solve this? Thanks!

@azinchuk sorry!

I can’t provide screenshot examples but I can add more description:

I’ve added in the steps for the robot to open the website, log into salesforce.com, used xpaths to access a reports tab and select a report but the report is in a table format and I need to click the hyperlink in the first record always, however the report is forever changing so I don’t think I can use x paths because it will look for that record/its ID, is there anything else I can use? Let me know if you need more information.

It is possible to select the first table row with XPath
