Loop/Changing Page

Post by inoob » Fri Jun 15, 2018 1:24 pm

Version Build=9030808
FireFox =51.0.1

Hello here is what I have done so far, I took out the url because you guys can not get to it anyway. So I will explain, it is a database that shows all our products, pictures of them, names and so forth. I need to copy and extract just the names of them to a csv file. Did that and it is done, everything below works just fine. So when I go to the site, it will loop and extract all the names on that page (extracting 100 names per page), my issue we have 934 pages we need to do this to, so how can I create it where I can extract the names I need on that page and once it extracts the last name on the page it will go ahead and hit next page. I was trying to use !loop but I may have to manually select them all and then just have it hit the next page then !loop. But I am curious is there a way where I can run loop and then have it hit the next page and then have it start over again on the extraction? Thanks and sorry if this is a bit confusing I am new to imacro as well.

Yep, you are on the "good track", ah-ah...! 8)

Now, search the Forum using the following Search Keywords "nested + loop(s) + eval + modulo" and you should find a few Examples of what you need next... :idea:

The "Principle" is using 'EVAL()' to compute a Var based on '!LOOP' that will start looping again from 1-2-3-... at 101-102-103-..., and that will "spit" a "1" to use for 'TAG POS=n' on your 'Next' Button only for '!LOOP'=100-200-300-... 8)
