Thread Title is a bit useless, we have a complete Sub-Forum full of "Extracting Data Problem" Threads...! :roll:
=> ... Where your Thread will be moved, but no need to create a Duplicate now... :wink:

FCI mentioned, perfect..., give your Thread a more Descriptive Title for me to read/have a look... And I see no Script posted, I "hope" you've explained what the Pb is and what you've tried..., but extracting the 3 Fields you've circled shouldn't be very difficult, from one glimpse at your Screenshot...

Hum, and I've probably already asked you to rather upload your Screenshots "directly" to the Forum rather than using those external Pix Hosting Sites that all go commercial or dark one day, rendering those Threads on our Forum a bit "useless" for other Users, with empty Image Containers...

You can only delete a Post (or Thread) as long as nobody (including yourself) has posted after you...

But deleting a Post or a Thread because you found the Answer/Solution is not a "correct" Use of the Forum, and I don't help Users (anymore) who delete their Post/Thread rather than sharing the Solution... If you had the Case and the Qt, chances are, some other User(s) will one day have the same Case/Qt and will be happy with your Solution while searching the Forum..., except that this Thread probably won't be found by anybody because of its too vague Title... :roll:
(Reason why I often quote Posts (usually from "Low Quality" (new) Users), even if I don't answer their Thread, to prevent them from deleting their Post/Thread if they find the Solution and don't want to share it...)

And yep indeed, 'Relative Positioning' was the most logical way to implement your Scenario... Pretty "basic" Functionality, good that you've (finally) discovered it..., even if I would nearly be surprised if I had not already used it for some of your previous Threads... 8)
