Pasting Data into UI element

Hi All,


I'm new to Power Automate and loving the robust features it already making life easier. I'm trying to build a flow on desktop at the moment I've made it so it can copy the data from the excel file I need to grab data from I need it to paste into a UI element (webpage doesn't accept emulated typing) what action do I need to use for this?


Any help is appreciated thank you 🙂

you should be able to read from excel into a variable and then add the variable into the UI Element 

see Excel - Power Automate | Microsoft Docs

and UI automation - Power Automate | Microsoft Docs

Thanks johnaustin for replying!

I've tried this but all it does error out:


that's why i thought copy pasting was the answer
