Help extract 1 data element

Post by GarryP » Wed Feb 22, 2006 1:43 am

I need to extract one piece of data that I have not been able to do. I have everything else on this site working fine. Here is the info in the extract wizard:

Seclected Text Information: CHECKING<INPUT type=hidden value=CHECKING name=AccDescrip1>

Anchor HTML: <B>CHECKING<INPUT type=hidden value=CHECKING name=AccDescrip1></B>

ATTR: <B>*

When I test the selection box jumps to a different part of the page and doesnt return anything. The actual data I need is the word CHECKING in the above lines. There are a few of these on each page and they vary between about 5 choices.
I am sure I am missing something simple. Please have pity on me and point me in the right direction.
Thanx,
GarryP

Yes, changing the POS= parameter is the way to solve this. Please see http://forum.imacros.net/viewtopic.php?p=2031 for an example.
