Hi I am having trouble with the table extraction

I am on the last module of citizen developer and I am stuck with the task of Handling patient Information. The Table extraction is not extracting the url. Does anyone know or had the same issue? The button to extract the URL is on as shows in the image.

did you played with this?

Yes, this option was the most viable no?

Please share the url you are extracting from

on Edit Data Definition we can configure for retrieving the url
Have a look on the drop down if any hint for extracting the url is offered


This is what I am trying to extract the URL from.
I didn`t find it how in the link you sent.

do it as following:

  • Click add data and select first cell from first column

  • there will be a popup asking if you want to extract entire table. Click on NO

  • Click on finish selection
    Part results looks like this:

  • ensure following button is activated:

  • Click Add data

  • Select first cell of second column

  • click finish selection

Part Result looks like this:

Clicking on preview:

then just post edit the extraction configuration and close the wizard by clicking to the save icon

Peter, I did as you explained, and still, not URL appeared.

I would just request to repeat the steps again as described. In the screenshots I documented that it is possible.
Pay attention on this please:

As an alternate we can do following:
copy following:

	<row exact="1">
		<webctrl tag="tr"/>
	<column exact="1" name="Column1" attr="text">
		<webctrl tag="tr"/>
		<webctrl tag="td" idx="1"/>
	<column exact="1" name="Column2" attr="text" name2="Column3" attr2="href">
		<webctrl tag="tr"/>
		<webctrl tag="td" idx="2"/>
		<webctrl tag="a" idx="1"/>

to this setting (click on … for expanding the expression box):

Hi Peter,
Its getting the url now. Thank You! Now I am just having another problem. Its only downloading 1 file. I put a delay operation and still I dont know why it is taking so long.

Peter thanks for the help. I managed to finish the task.

I’m using the latest version of Studio and the Extract URL button is also not working for me.


Can you please give me advice on how to extract the URL if it is embedded in the ‘Title’ Column?

<Column xsi:type='DataColumn' ReferenceName='Title' ReferenceIdx='0' Name='Title'>
	<Format xsi:type='TextColumnFormat' />
<Column xsi:type='DataColumn' ReferenceName='Location' ReferenceIdx='1' Name='Location'>
	<Format xsi:type='TextColumnFormat' />
<Column xsi:type='DataColumn' ReferenceName='Date' ReferenceIdx='2' Name='Date'>
	<Format xsi:type='TextColumnFormat' />
