Can the program literally "find" text within a page?

Post by greggb » Tue Dec 09, 2008 2:54 am

I need to automate a process that goes in and extracts a certain field (row) within a webpage, but it takes so long to go through the entire page line by line, I was wondering if the program will actually go through the page and literally find certain text, for example a unique identifier, then start the extraction from there.

Is this possible?

Yes, you can use RELATIVE POSITIONING. For more details you can read user manual for the same.
