Hi @kelvinyeo24,
Use Get Attribute activity to fetch the value

Kindly have a view on this thread

You can get it using Get Attribute Activity with the following settings.

Attribute : “value”

Target- Selector:
<html title='*' />
<webctrl name='ctrl00$ddIFE' tag='SELECT' />
<webctrl aaname='EngineerB' tag='OPTION' />


Hi Yoichi,

Thanks, I got it to work. But how do I turn aaname=‘EngineerB’ into a variables. Because it can be any engineer…

Hi @kelvinyeo24
In the Selector itself of aaname give it as Engineer*

In Selector Editor, you can set it as the following.

"<webctrl aaname='{{strEngineerVar}}' tag='OPTION' />"

You can also use right click to dragged text to put variable.
