Data Scrapping:

Data scraping enables you to extract structured data from your browser to a database, .csv file or even Excel spreadsheet.

Structured data is a specific kind of information that is highly organized and is presented in a predictable pattern. For example, all Google search results have the same structure (a link at the top, a string of the URL and a description of the web page), which enables Studio to easily extract the information, as it always knows where to find it.

Data scraping always generates a container (Attach Browser or Attach Window) with a selector for the top-level window and an Extract Structured Data activity with a partial selector, thus ensuring a correct identification of the page to be scraped.

Additionally, the Extract Structured Data activity also comes with an automatically generated XML string (in the ExtractMetadata property) that indicates the data to be extracted.

all the scraped information is stored in a Data Table variable, that you can later use to populate a database, a .csv file or an Excel spreadsheet
