I am unable to check for .pdf files from the extract data table, before writing those extracted ones to CSV.Anyone can suggest the solution?
Welcome to our uipath community.
Let’s say output of scraping result as ‘inputDT’ and then try below expression.
pdfDT = (From p In inputDT.Select Where (p("ColumnName").Tostring.Contains(".pdf") Select p).CopyToDataTable
Thanks for the solution.But am not sure where to add this expression.can you pls explain in depth
Give the pdfdt expression after scrapping the Datatable
Welcome to uipath community
We can do that with a ASSIGN activity like this
Once after getting the datatable named dt
Use this expression in assign activity
dt = dt.AsEnumerable().Where(Function(a) a.Field(of string)(“yourcolumnname”).Contains(“.pdf”)).CopyToDatatable()
This will give us only the datatable with rows having pdf along the mentioned thread column
After scraping the data and assign output to one DataTable variable and then use assign activity and write above expression. The above expression will give output as DataTable and am assigning it to pdfDT variable and it’s of type DataTable.
Hi Lakshman,can you check this workflow and suggest me what needs to be corrected related to finding the .pdf links
I did not find any workflow in your post.
Hi Lakshman ,sorry i was unable to load my file as am new user. can you check this screenshot of the workflow and suggest me what needs to be corrected related to finding the .pdf links
dont need to give the query within double quotation marks
Based on the query intellise get populated
I tried without quotes too,but still gives compiler error saying “processing expression (From p Et ExtractDataTable.Select Where (Et(“URL”).Tostring.Contains(”.pdf") Select p).CopyToDataTable)’ expected
can you pls check the syntax of the pdfDt variable of the below workflow
Zip that file and share with me personally. So that I can check and let you know where it went wrong.
