Hi Ebijo27,

Try removing the spaces between EXTRACT and TXT on the last line:

Code: Select all

TAG POS=1 TYPE=SPAN ATTR=ID:coinbalance EXTRACT=TXT

Also, to save the data to CSV, you'll want to:

Code: Select all

SAVEAS TYPE=EXTRACT FOLDER=* FILE=coinbalance.csv
To keep only the most recent data, you'll have to delete the existing CSV file before SAVEAS runs (otherwise SAVEAS will add rows to the existing file):

Code: Select all

FILEDELETE NAME=coinbalance.csv
(Note: "coinbalance.csv" will be located in your iMacros "Downloads" folder.)
