Unable to copy a value read in excel to a dropdown in portal

Hi All,

Please help!!!
Issue : In my flow I am reading a value in a cell from excel and pasting that on a dropdown in portal.
I get below error when I use Select activity for the dropdown


The selector value is below when I use UiPath Explorer

I have read the other posts but nothing seems to be working for me.

Thanks in advance

Hi @anshulagarwal,

So from in your case select item activity it will not support.

Try other ways to select the drop down value.

Refer this post

Just checked once again and I realised it is not dropdown but a combobox in which we can select multiple values by clicking on the box.

Not sure if this can be done or not. Any suggestions?

Hi @anshulagarwal,

It’s possible use dynamic selector pass your value use click activity ctrl+click.

Pass the aaname as dynamic
For example
aaname ='"+your value+"'

Hi @arivu96

So here is what I am doing.
When I am writing the value after reading, I am using Attach browser. Inside it I am using Click on the combobox to reveal all the values and then delay and then clicking on one of the populated values using the way you told me above



Am I doing something wrong here?

Error comes after process of clicking and delay is done

Any suggestions please

hi @anshulagarwal

in this selector don’t click on the button and paste the value

u need to type the value aaname=“‘+b2result.ToString+’” in the text box and make the title as *

Thanks @AshwinS2

I figured that out yesterday. Thanks for your post :slight_smile:
Probably, where I went wrong was that I was using the varialbe in Selector Editor instead of Expression editor
