Extract from Window - UI Automation Error

Hello guys,

 

I am a beginner and got to know about PA tool recently. As a start, I have watched the video- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IQ_KpBC8fwo and trying to create an automation using UI automation option to extract the data from the word file and write it into the excel file using the loop function. However, I am getting the error- "Extraction failed (failed to get window) on the 'Extract data from Window' action.

 

I have followed the same steps as mentioned in the video, however, receiving the error. Not sure what is the issue. Could anyone help me with the error? Attached the screenshot.

 

Thanks.ErrorErrorExtract WindowExtract Window

Looks like you might need to edit the selector of your WINDOW ELEMENT, since it changes with every document.
