CE 2019.5.0 - No programming/developer background outside of UiPath.
Task: Automate data entry to an application from a notification email. The email can contain a variable number of orders that need to be grabbed.
First problem: Trying to build a quick proof of concept for an email with only 1 item (no idea how to handle more than 1 item - problem 2). I was following the below thread until I hit the Data Scraping piece. The data scrapping wizard returns an error: Automation server can’t create object.
Get Text returns what I’m look for, but the selectors make it seem like it’s not repeatable, especially if the email has multiple orders - ie url name of file & an aaname that’s the dynamic value I’m looking to grab.
Screen Scraping will get all the text I need, but I can’t figure out how to fix the format. Every video I’ve watched magically has data that scrapes as desired. None of the [space][tab][new line] combinations give me the correct header & data pairings, so I expect I somehow need to split/parse the info.

Audio Format: Stereo
Closed Caption: No
Desired Output - Table
Length of the elements are not static and will vary form order to order.
Problem 2 - Need to be able to handle emails with multiple entries & variable lengths of each element. The selector for the table seems to be consistent so might just be in my head.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
