Hi @Aksh1yadav,

Thank you for your valuable and quick answer - Understood that.

Can you please suggest, how to retrieve data with paging in this, that is to get all paging data (Page 1 to Page 5).

Paging data is working in Ebay Website and issue only in this website.

Thanks again,

Best,
K.Kannan.

Hi,

Thanks for your reply - Yes - I downloaded and compared with my old code - Run that.

Actual Page is 5 - It stopped at Page 3.

Result shown only 25 records.

Added Excel Sheet and it saved only 25 records.

Please see attachment - Same your page, Added excel.

Page 1,2,3 showing - Data saved only for 25 records.

Am I missing anything - Please take a look and reply.

Thank You.

Hey @KannanK

Yes issue you are not able to debug is of Activity Timeout at page 3. you are not able to see because in your Extract meta data Activitiy ContinueonError Property is set to True.

Make it blank then run you will be able to see and can check for the rest :slight_smile:
