HI Arivu,

I have already gone through this, and I am facing error when I am using
Anchor based activity and using Find Image + get text activity.

I have used relative scraping and got the expected result. But don’t know why it is not working for Anchor base activity, And this the PDF which is available in training material.

I am also facing the same issue

in pdf automation video there is shown in anchor base get text, the variable will create by itself, but mine is not creating, also also unpredictable results. @badita please help.

Hi Same issue with me as well. I am trying to use Anchor Base but it’s not working it’s showing me some view name. I tried to Anchor Base as shown in the video but it’s not working.

Got stuck here…

I have exactly the same issue. Is anyone able to solve this yet? Or is it the error from UIPath software?

i have the same problem also and i can only extract partial data only.

I am facing the same issue. I get the output as “AvSplitterView” instead of the actual data.

can anyone help, even Im having the same issue


Is there any solution for this?



@JeffNZ, can you attach the pdf if it’s not confidential.

Hi All,

Using Anchor base and using get text, the output is empty or incorrect output, we can use relative scraping and for relative scraping we get the same sequence, find image and get visible text or get full text, remove this activity (get visible text or get full text) and use get OCR text activity and modify the scale property to get the exact value.

I have attached the workflow.
