Downloading a Dynamic Amount of Files from Webpage


I am trying to download a dynamic amount of files from a webpage. I’ve tried several things after reading other’s posts.

  • Since the amount of files and names of the files to download will change from month to month, using click activities won’t work
  • The files aren’t set up as a table on the webpage, so I can’t use the find children activity
  • I’ve used Data Scraping and saved the output of the file names as a data table and attempted to do a for each row activity, but am not sure how to proceed from there. I was thinking of assigning each row name to a string variable and then searching for that on the webpage and then doing a click activity, but am not sure if that is the best way. I also ran into the error when attempting to use the assign activity “value type of 1 dimensional array of string cannot be converted to data row”.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

You have to assign variable as FileName inside for each loop like this
str_fileName= row(“FileName”).toString
Also put the count of downloading files into configuration file so that it will be easy for you to manage it

let me know in case of further details
