Automating a Deletion Based on Variable? I think...

Post by jfj3rd » Fri Apr 23, 2010 4:56 pm

Hello everyone,

Forgive my topic, I'm simply not sure how to label this post correctly.

I have an active page much like:

http://www.tutoring911.com/states.html

I'm trying to build a FF iMacro to find the Alabama link, and then hit the 'Delete' button to the right of it. The iMacro has to find "Alabama" only and not other links like, "Alabama Summers" or something like that.

Any advice on this one?

Thanks Sanjiv & Daniel,

I've already been using Relative Position, just didn't grasp the idea of using it to click on a link. Maybe a little data overload.

Either way, you've both been extremely instrumental in my ability to learn anything. I really appreciate the assistance.
