Great
Hope these steps would help you resolve this
—use a excel application scope activity and pass the file path as input
—inside that scope use a read range activity and get the output with a variable of type datatable named outdt
—then use a for each row loop activity and pass the above variable as input and inside the loop use a open browser activity and pass the url of the web page
—inside the open browser activity use a Select Item activity and select the element we want
Where in the input mention as row(“yourcolumnname”).ToString

—or if the select item doesn’t work we can use send hot key activity with key tab until it reaches the drop down field and use n number of send hot key activity with key as tab until it reaches there
—once after reaching if the type into activity works we can pass the same above expression as input that would choose from the list

Hope this would help you
Kindly try this and let know for any queries or clarification

Fine
Then we can use select item activity
We can use send hot key if select item doesn’t work and that too once after reaching the drop down field with tab key kindly use TYPE INTO activity and pass the string we want to choose
Like sometimes when we choose a drop down and type the term we want it will take us to that string in the drop down right, similar way

No need of using that much down key in send hot key activity

Hope this would help you

I Can’t Use Type Into Activity Bcoz There Is no search box is available.
I have to simply click on the drop down and There are default list items available.
I can’t Enter text manually.After Clicking on the dropdown i have to select the item inside the dropdown what is available in excel sheet.May be x or y or z.

Select Item activity didn’t work.

Thanks
