Data scrapping problems

Hi, i’m trying to use the activities “data scrapping” in order to extract datas from the website : to get the name,firstname,adress and phone number to an excel file but when i try to select the data to extract only the first 2 columns works the third make an error saying : “Unable to determine a model, please indicate another item in the sample, related to the samples from the start of the collection”.

Hi @Vira7

Welcome to UiPath Forum!

Effectively, the error here is that to use data scraping you must have a collection of data, as in Amazon, you have a list of results, that way the pattern is identified and you can extract the information in a massive way, in this case you only have a single item, a single person, so it does not work, if the portal would show you on a single screen more than one person it would be possible to do it.

If you are doing it to practice this functionality, I recommend you to do it on Amazon, if on the other hand you want to get a list of fake data, I see that the portal offers this option at the top “Order in Bulk”.

I hope this is helpful, best regards!

Welcome to the UiPath Community :tada:

Please use modern activities for these. Extract individually like this solution. This will give you 10 random names extracted from the site. you can change max iteration count of While as per your requirement.

Sample Code:
Workflow.xaml (18.5 KB)

Output File:
Output.xlsx (8.4 KB)
