Updating a website for from a Excel file

by ed-prs on Thu Jun 22, 2017 7:45 am

This need to log into a website and upload add a invoice number against a PO for 100's on entries a week.
I have created a basic macro that:
1 Open Excel spread sheet
2 Opens the browse
3 Logs in
4 Go to spread sheet
5 Copy cell A1 (PO number)
6 Go to website
7 Search for PO number on website
8 Open PO entry
9 Go to spread sheet
10 Copy cell B1 (Invoice number)
11 Go to website
12 Paste Invoice number to invoice field
13 Save
Repeat 4 to 13 moving down each row 1 at a time.

However:
1. The macro created uses the reference copies i.e. the PO number such as 123243 rather than the function copy. I want the macro to perform the action rather than the reference
2. I am manually creating the function to move down the spread sheet is there a way to automate this?

I am coming from this from a low level tech background

CIM...! :mrgreen:
(Always mention your FCI when you open a Thread, read my Sig..., many Commands are not implemented for all Browsers/Versions...)

Not too sure what "PO" means..., "Process/Product Order"...? (Just to know, it won't really matter for your Case...)

I don't really understand what your Pb('s) is/are, especially Qt_1, would be easier if you posted your Script with a clear Reference to which Line(s) Qt_1 is related... I don't understand the "relationship" between "reference + PO number + copy + action"... Give more Details about what "happens" and what exactly you want...

For Qt_2, if I understand correctly your Qt, but difficult without seeing your Script, simply use the '!LOOP' Mechanism for '!DATASOURCE_LINE':
Code: Select all
SET !DATASOURCE_LINE {{!LOOP}}
- (F)CIM = (Full) Config Info Missing: iMacros + Browser + OS with all 3 Versions...
- I usually don't even read the Question if that (required) Info is not mentioned...
- Script & URL usually help a lot for a more "educated" Help...
