Can one use html source code to automate in UiPath?

Hi, I have some downloaded html files and I was wondering if there is a way to build an automation for the fields on the webpage? When opening the webpage locally I cannot find any selectors (the whole webpage is the only selector UiPath recognises), so I was thinking is there perhaps a way of using the webpage’s source code to create a selector or fill in the fields etc.

Ok…So, is your issue resolved?

Perfect as it was mentioned with:
