SAVEAS unknown command

Post by ztodd » Mon Aug 29, 2011 4:17 am

Windows 7
Chrome 13.0.782.215

I'm getting this error-

SyntaxError: unknown command: SAVEAS at line 3

in this script -

SAVEAS TYPE=EXTRACT FOLDER=C:\Users\Owner\Documents\Todd<SP>work\global<SP>triumph FILE=GT.CSV

What did I do wrong?

Hello ztodd,

SAVEAS is currently not supported in iMacros for Chrome: ... imitations

Currently, the only way to "get" the extracted data is if you are using the iMacros Scripting Edition to automate iMacros for Chrome, then you can retrieve the extracted data by calling iimGetLastExtract() in your script.

The SAVEAS functionality is going to be implemented in the next major release of iMacros for Chrome, but unfortunately I don't know the time frame just yet.

Well, I discovered I can copy it to the clipboard at least- this seems to work.
