Problem - Data Scraping from Microsoft Access Office365

Hi All,

I can’t get the Data Scraping Wizard tool to extract data from a Table in Microsoft Access (Office365) for some reason. ‘Select Element’ for any field gives the following Error Message:

",hexadecimal value 0xFFFF, is an invalid character. Line 2, position 1.

(I’ve already installed the UiPath.Database.Activities package).

Please can you help?


I have a suggestion, Instead of datascrapping you can go for read range of excel activities. or can you elaborate your use case…

Best Regrads,

Hi Ashwin32,

Yes activities is installed.

Previously the workflow has worked, but stopped scraping from MS Access for some reason.
