As you can see, Its not structuring well

@rohangroombridge, in this Website, element/Selector will not change the position so we can use Screen Scraping Activity that will be stored into a variable and build the Data-table pass that variable for the particular column.

Thanks but how much should i select at a time. All of it or lots of each section?

Its one time Activity but you have to use dynamic selector for the particular field.

What do you mean dynamic selector for the particular field?

Please the link
