Unable to extract structured data using Data Scraping - Facing TypeError During RunTime


What does the below TypeError mean?

Hi @ReshmaBhaskar

So I see that you are trying to scrape data in ACME System work items.
Do few checks here to see the activity is correctly setup…

In the selector of the extract structured data activity, check whether it match the below.

<html title='ACME System 1 - Work Items' />
<webctrl tag='TABLE' />

Under Extract Metadata, check whether its the same as this.
<extract-table get_columns_name='1' get_empty_columns='1' />

I want to know whether you are extracting data of only one page of that grid? all extracting all the pages at once?

Let know whether this helps


Hi @Lahiru.Fernando

Data Scraping within the Attach Browser scope worked fine. I am extracting all the pages at once for Invoice.

I was just trying to get it outside of it and debug. Hope this activity should always be used inside attach browser!

Well… not really. it doesn’t always needs to be inside an attach browser activity. I have the same process which I wrote for ACME test. I have the same activity without attach browser and it works just fine :slight_smile:

Buddy, kindly set the continuousonerror property in extract structure as true…lets check whether the issue is with flow or data extraction… this would help us to solve this



The issue is resolved!
