Send Hotkey: Special keys syntax error. Encountered invalid special key at text position: 13

Hallo People,

Can someone please help me by explaining the reason for the following error: ‘Send Hotkey: Special keys syntax error. Encountered invalid special key at text position: 13’

I am trying to copy the data (Multiple rows data) from Excel using hot keys & want to paste the copied data in SAP application.

Thankyou in advance!!

Hi @Narala_Sravani,

Welcome to the UiPath Community!

Cold you please provide an example of what you’re typing with the Send Hotkey?

If you’re getting data from an excel file, it’d be easier to use a Read Range to get the info and then using a For Each Row to loop through each row of the table and enter it into SAP.

Hi @Narala_Sravani ,

I don’t know if you are still looking for an answer, but I got the same error and the solution was to set the “SpecialKey” property to “False”. As we send a “Ctrl+v” to paste the date, there is no special key involved.

I hope it helps you or other users :slight_smile:

Hello @artur.tranzola,

Thankyou for the reply. I will keep that in mind.

My issue got resolved after using delay function.

hello, how do you put the delay function? is it the delay that you put into the workflow and the error is gone? Because i did the same but the error is still there.

Hello @aimansyazani89 ,

I have used delay function in between copying the data and pasting the data, as in run-time the copy-paste functionality was too fast. It worked for me when I use the delay of 1 - 2 seconds.

Hope I have cleared your question. Thankyou!!
