Need help with imacros- newbee

Post by negofi » Wed Jun 27, 2018 6:26 am

So I am not a programmer or anything. Just very mediocore at vba excel, looking to automate some mundane office tasks.

We have app based website- COGNOS for Profit & Loss statement of various departments. Every month I have download a lot of data through the same series of repetitive steps. So, I was looking to automate things through imacros.

However, here is the problem I am facing. I am not able to record any action that I perform on the website from imacros. I think the website is sort of app based (I infer this from the fact that though after logging on to the website, I perform some actions on it, the url remains same, nothing happens to it.) Can't even right click and inspect element on it. The only command that imacros registers is the command to log on to the website.

Any ideas on how to solve this?

Completely Useless (= Non-Descriptive) Thread Title (everybody "needs help with iMacros" on this Forum...! :roll: ) + "CIM" :mrgreen: (Read my Sig...) if you want some Help... :idea:

Hum..., my "wild guess" about your FCI is that you'll probably be on IE, ah-ah...! (Even if you've opened another Thread in the FF Sub-Forum...) :wink:
- (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...
