Hiya! This is my… technically second UiPath robot! I’m trying to build a robot which does the following:
1: Gets a word from a Google Sheets document
2: Copies + Pastes that word into WordNet
3: Gets the parts of speech
4: Gets the corresponding definitions for the different parts of speech
5: Pastes the parts of speech and definitions into the Sheets document
6: Rinse & Repeat
Well, I have all of the steps, except for 3 and 4. You see, the webpage I’m trying to extract data from, WordNet, looks like this. I use the word ‘well’ as an example, because it has the most parts of speech out of pretty much all words. I would say 4 or 5 parts of speech is the maximum number of parts of speech a word can have.
So, the selector for the text where it says ‘Noun’ at the top in big, bold H3 font looks like this:
<webctrl idx='1' tag='H3' />
The problem with this selector is that it ONLY gets the word ‘Noun.’ If I were to run the selector on this page, I would like to instead get ‘Noun Verb Adjective Adverb.’ This is the same problem for the definitions; if I select one chunk of definitions, it will only give me the definitions under the word ‘Noun,’ and none of the others.
So, is this possible at all, or should I honestly just give up? I’ve been at it for a few days now beating my head against the wall; I’ve probably spent more time trying to fuss with this problem than it would have taken me to do all 322 rows myself.
Thanks for reading my silly problem!
