Windows/Desktop application not compatible with the data scraping technique

Hi all,
I am trying to use Data Scraping for a windows based application. I am trying to read the table which is clearly visible in tabular format. But when I try to use data scraping tool to do that it is not able to recognize it as a table. It throws the error as “The control doesnot support data scraping.Please select the table cell.” So the total area is being indicated and not recognized as table.

Can someone please please help me on this? Its very urgent.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hello @Hirunyaa

Data scraping does not support windows based applications. It mostly supports for web based application…

So what you can do is, you can try using the screen scraping option and get the data onto a string which you can later delimit and get onto a datatable…

Have you tried this option?

Hi @Hirunyaa

As @Lahiru.Fernando said, data scrapping is mostly compatible for Web based application

Adding to the @Lahiru.Fernando you can also try to use get text and make the selector dynamic to loop into using while loop

if you can provide any screen it will be good

Hope this helps
