I am currently working on a research project where I need to get some information from a webpage. Basically I am looping through a bunch of URLs and try to extract multiple text elements. These text elements get written into an excel file. My Problem is that not every single URL has all necessary text elements. So it would be great to have some kind of exception handler that writes an empty cell or a specific character (like #) if one of the elements is not found on the current URL and than continues the worklflow. I tried “try catch” but I could not get it working…
An example where not all text elements are available would be (https://www-sciencedirect-com.eaccess.ub.tum.de/science/article/pii/S0361368299000562)
