Hey everyone I hope everyone is doing great.
I am currently facing an issue with the For Each Ui Element and Data Scraping activities in UiPath Studio. When I try to scrape data from a website, the process crashes, and I believe it’s because the data on the website is too large. (FYI, All the data is presented on a single page)
Has anyone else encountered a similar issue before? If so, how did you resolve it? I have tried adjusting the timeouts and delays, but it doesn’t seem to help.
Any suggestions or insights would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!
Attached here with is the screenshot of what I am trying to extract so that I’ll be able to click all of them one by one it could be in thousands.
Did you try using find children activity?
And can you share more info…like when it crashes does it throw any error?
My laptop just becomes unresponsive, even when I try to Add element. I am not even able to create a datatable or run a for each Ui Element.
Can you try clearing the temp files and appdata UiPath temp files and try
Or did you try usinf find children activity
Clearing temp didn’t worked. BTW I clear them usually. How can I find child activity in For Each Ui Element or in Data Extraction?
Its a separate activity please search for find children…where you can give filters to filter on specific children you need and you can indicate each tile as element then loop using idx and get each button
Sure I will do this thing.
If you have a large amount of data to scrape, you may want to consider using parallel processing to speed up the process. You can split the data into smaller chunks and run multiple instances of the process simultaneously to scrape the data faster.
also, you can try breaking the data into smaller chunks. You can use the “Navigate To” activity to navigate to different pages on the website and scrape smaller amounts of data at a time.
The problem is that we cannot use a parallel process here as all of the data is on a single page. Otherwise, we can use For Each Ui Element or Data Extraction is the case of extracting data from multiple pages.
