I’m wondering about this for a while now. But when i use screen scraping or any other methode to get values from a site or program. It fails from time to time cause of a small change or cause of a user event interupting it.
Now is there a way when something fails within a process to recieve a variable (e,x. boolean that goes to true) so i can buffer this out and continue the process.
I needed to create a map structure in documentum with info retrieved from excel. Every folder i created had to be right clicked and opened in outlook to retrieve a link to this specific folder and continue the process in an other program. But from time to time it woudn’t open outlook. I tryd to buffer it out with a if loop and even to do everything twice. but it was some sort of mechanisme that prevented me to do it.
If in this case i could get a variable returned that the next element coudn’t proceed i could interact with it and go one step back. Which would had of worked. But i could only continue which was a problem for the entire process.
