I’m new to UiPath and currently trying to scrape data from google patent. So far I’ve gotten most of the data needed by constructing slectors based on HTML id:s and classes. But one table from which I need to pull data doesn’t have a unique ID or a distinct class.
See this page for an example:
I need to get all the data from the first column of the table under the “Cited By” h3 header. As you can see, the table itself and all the links share the same class as most other links on the page. So far I haven’t been able to target this table specifically and I’m all out of ideas. The goal is to get each patent number in this table into a single string in UiPath…
The header above the table, which says “Cited By”, has an ID as you can tell. So I tried using an anchor base to look for the element directly beneath it, but I couldn’t get it to work and I don’t know if it’s the right kind of solution.
Any help would be greatly appreciated! Either if someone could help me with a solution or just point me in the right direction in terms of what activitites I should use.
