How to check for a (error) message on web page

Post by Guest » Fri Nov 18, 2005 11:47 pm

I have a form that I can fill in from Excel using your product. Now, depending on the charcters I enter, the result will be eithir a "congratulations" or "sorry the charcter is invlid". The message will be printed on the web page above the form.
How will imacros tell me if I got an error or not? Both web pages will be the same except for the message printed on top of the page.

I know this isn't your thing but if you could point me in the right direction, I'd be very grateful.
