How to click on hyperlink in a web application/web page


I am a beginner of UIPATH and working on program to create work order tickets in servicenow with input from excel.

I was successfully able to create the ticket. - first step.

I have to click on hyperlink in a webpage. The name of the hyperlink keeps on changing but the position of the hyperlink will remain same. How can click into it ignoring the text?

I have tried few suggestions which I gone through the Forum FAQs but could not get my problem solved.

for security reasons, I can not provide with the file!

Use the wildcard character * in the selector .for example if aaname=WOTO2420590 ,use wildcard character like aaname=*

You can use wildcards(* or ?) depending on your situation.
Moreover, you can use UIExplorer to fine tune your selector.
Else, try implementing the concept of dynamic selector. The tutorial for it is available in academy.

Thank you for your response @Ashish_Verma @Kavitha_M .

I have tried using wildcard * but the click activity is working on different position than the mentioned.

Please see the screenshots below and let me know

Also, I have used activate activity and the used click Activity.

Could you please try with Click Image or Click Text Activity along with attach browser activity?

Thank you @Ashish_Verma

I used UIExplorer and to select row,column locations and enter wildcard(*) as parent id.

It worked fine!

Hi @Ashish_Verma,

finally stock at the last step in writing the text into the excel. i am getting the below error in write cell activity.

Write Cell: The given key was not present in the dictionary.

screenshots below…

Current_row = Mydata.rows.indexOf(row) + 2

Cell = “D”+Current_row.ToString


is there a problem with variables?

Change the variable type of generic value to appropriate type(String).
Generic value should not be set as it is not a good practice.
