Extract Data and Paste to Field with existing text

Post by Eddgy » Mon Mar 19, 2018 8:20 pm

So I just purchased the program for the file data extraction option and I'm having some trouble figuring out how to make it work.

I have a CSV file with two columns. Column 1 has a number that needs to be searched, and column 2 has a code that I need inserted into a field with existing information in that numbers page.

For example:
  • Column 1 Column 2
    1234567 7548
    7954321 8475
Can anyone help with the data extraction that changes to each row every loop?

CIM...! :mrgreen: (Read my Sig...)

You already have a few very similar/related Threads on the Forum btw... :idea:

:arrow: Hum, and in iMacros "Terminology", "(Data) Extraction" means you are extracting/scrapping Data from a Web-Page/Site (using the 'EXTRACT' Mechanism), and not "retrieving" it from your own '.CSV' DataSource File.
=> Your Thread has nothing to do with 'Data Extraction', correct Sub-Forum would have been the 'General' one... (But don't worry, is OK, no need to duplicate your Thread now...)
- (F)CIM = (Full) Config Info Missing: iMacros + Browser + OS with all 3 Versions...
- I usually don't even read the Question if that (required) Info is not mentioned...
- Script & URL usually help a lot for a more "educated" Help...
