Hi, I am bit frustrated with the lack of instructions

Hi, I am bit frustrated with the lack of instructions.

I was able to perform the first two steps, command to open the Double UI and open the excel file Robot Path. But, I am not sure where do I put the excel file? Do I drop this as an activity within the “Use Application” for the Double Interface? Or outside as a new activity?

Also, I have been in a loop with the next step which is Type into the “cash In” input field, the value from “Robot Path.xlsx”, cell B2. When I add the activity for “Type Into” what am I suppose to do? What I did was use the “Indicate target on screen” and added blank field as the target and the ‘Cash In’ as the anchor. I then type in text the value from cell B2 from the excel spreadsheet.

Am I doing this correctly, or am I really far off? I feel that it is not clear how and when are we suppose to add activities within the same “block” or when do we go outside of the “block”.



Hi, I think I figure it out! Although it was mostly by using a combination of logic and trial an error. The email went through as well.

The only issue I had is that the transaction number was not added to the file. When I use the drop-down of ‘Save To’ it doesn’t give me the Robot Path file as an option. I did a custom input and wrote the name of the file and the cell location. But still, the transaction was not saved to the file.



I placed the ERP and excel file in one block and Outlook in another block. Since the data has to be extracted to/from Excel and to/from ERP.

Hi Sam,

I agree with your comments. I feel like there is a lack of instruction…or at least a way we can see the answer so we can put the pieces together…

To input the Transaction # I used the “Get Text” action. It worked for me with that.

Good luck!

Thanks! Gook luck in week 2.

I agree. I even don’t know where to start: Where do I find the resource for opening the double UI app?

Hi Mariele! Just unzip the file you downloaded, DoubleUI.zip, and just run the DoubleUI.exe file. There is no installation needed.

Hello Bianca, o.k. thank you - I got it now. Two further general questions: 1) I don’t understand where exactly I should post the questions for example for week 3. I always find a “reply” button to questions of other people but where is the button for starting a new question? 2) I cannot open the solutions you integrated. After downloading and unzipping there are several files which either just show some elements of screenshots or files which cannot be opened at all.

I can answer this one :slight_smile:

You can simply go to the #learn:reboot-your-skills category and create a New Topic there. Look for this button:
