Save as on web page



I am trying to do a relative simple task, using IE I need to download a csv file from a web page to a particular location on the server, so I need to use Save As

If I try to use the “Select Item” to mouse click the down arrow next to the save,I get

Does anyone know the correct method to click so I can choose the destination.



This post may help i think


hey @dsb18

I wants to know which IE version you are using because with IE11 it is showing save dialog pop up.

and this problem is due to slow page loading may be due to internet issue or something so Dom elements have not loaded and click event is already fired before loading.

if you are opening a url by uipath so make sure in activites properies always make “complete”.

here with click properties try to check simulate and let me know.
and other check by using UIexplorer you can check if it is a select box or combo box then you can use "select item"activity as well.

Let me know the things.




I had this problem before with IE so you can try it here. Use an On Element Appears Activity, change the options so that check WaitVisible and set RepeatForever to False and indicate the Save Buttons. Now the button should be clicked as soon as is visible.




Just wondering if you have managed to resolve the issue? I am having this issue when trying to export a report from a website.



@aksh1yadav I have similar issue , tried almost all suggestions in fourm, mentioning required steps.

Downloading some documents required in the process,I want to click on below save and click on Back option. flow is getting stuck on Save/Save as,
If I click Save manually flow is fine. just little delay noticed after save to click Back.

Please Help


That solution worked for me… Thanks


Hi Sir,

I tried On Element Appears activity for below

but still getting error. Open button is not getting clicked and ‘Time Out’ error appeared.

Please suggest.

Click save pdf button

I also faced the same problem. But problem is when I am running particular sequence “click save as” is working but same is not working when it is called from main workflow by running main workflow.
Again the same is working when I triggered the main workflow from UiRobot.
