Thanks

Please check the URL, it is a wrong one.

Hi @ashapkina,

Sorry about that: https://www.xe.com/currencyconverter/

Try using the XPath with single quotes: //*[@id='amount']

Hi @ashapkina it does not work.

I tried it, and it worked correctly.

Is the page completely loaded at this point in the script?
Try adding a timeout for the action.

Is IE the only browser you can use? We usually recommend using Chrome - it is the most reliable.
