Hello Vinay,

I tried to use a structured data scrap and it fetched me all the details as per the available structure in your URL. Please find the attached screen shot.scrapdttbl

Hello ,

I.also tried this the question is how to do this structure data scrap in middle of the process we need to scrap data for 10000 similar pages .

Data should come Horizontally in excel raw.

On the if you take next ink selector , it will run only 1 time.


You can try using Get Visible Text activity to fetch the text, split it using string manipulation, and assign it to your DT using a For Each Row activity.


Can you try Get Text activity and write the result to Datatable as below

DatatableVariable.Rows(RowNumber).Item(ColumnName) = GetTextVariable

Hope this may help you


Hello ,
Can you suggest in more detailed way , in which step you suggests this activity.



Check below for your reference


Hope this may help you


Build Datatable overwrites the dt each time. Don’t Build Datatable inside your loop. Build it once at the beginning.

You could use the UiPath.WebAPI.Activities library to convert the datatable to JSON, then output the JSON into the Excel cell as a string.
