Use of SPAN, generic value, and If statement

Hello all,

I am using screen scraping to scrape an area on a website. The variable is a GenericValue variable called SPAN and it’s output looks something like this : USD 177.73. This is just an example. I am parsing off the **USD ** which leaves 177.73 for example.

Next I am using an If statement and if the value is greater than 200 I am using a move file activity to rename the file from 1234.pdf to 1234+200.pdf. The problem I’m having is that the If seems to change the file name regardless of what the value is. What am I doing wrong? Do I need to convert the generic value variable to an integer first?

Thank you in advance


Yes. Change variable type of screen scraping to String from Generic value. And then mention below condition in IF statement.

         IF Cdbl(varScrapeValue) > Cdbl(200)
         Then use Move file blah blah
          Else Nothing.

@Lakshman - Thank you!
