Buddy @Ankur_Chaudhary
you can use send hotkey to select the word you want after a click activity to that field
This works.

  1. Click activity to click on to that field
  2. Once after clicking, use a send hot key to send the word say for example for January, just J in send hot key and followed by another send hot key with input ENTER


Is that working buddy


Hey @Ankur_Chaudhary

By inspecting your screenshot selector i can observe that you are using Chrome.
just to make sure have you installed Chrome extension?

you can also use Internet Explorer too.

Hi @Palaniyappan

Your tricks works but what about January, June & July?

How I am suppose to distinguish them with a Hot KEY?


Kind Regards

Hi @Palaniyappan

I tried this, but ti doesnt seems to work


Buddy @Ankur_Chaudhary

Indicate the element buddy, as that field can be selected

But would rather recommend to use a click and a send hotkey activity rather to two send hotkey activities

This would work buddy


Hi @Palaniyappan

I tried all ways.

This is my Xmal file if you want to give a try.

You might want to use UI Explorer and refine your selector for targetting an element SELECT (tag=‘SELECT’) that can be handled by the Select Item Activity.
