When attempting to select dropdown selections in Oracle OBIEE I noticed that I was unable to record the dropdown elements within the field. Would I need to enter in a variable as oppose to recording my click entries?

Try to click before selecting. Give a try. Hope that works for you. If not, pl post the screenshot.


#3

I attempted the suggestion that was provided about selecting first the field first and typing into it however It still did not pull in the data once I ran the bot.

Once the bot Ran it did throw an exception error. Hopefully you all can see the images. Any help I would greatly appreciate it!!
