Problem with Drop down menu

Good Day friends,


I try to use the set drop-down list value function on the web using the power automate desktop. The problem is that it gives me this error. The given option is in the list. Any ideas on how to solve this please?

Facing Same issue ☹️

I solved this problem by using send key [ tab]

repet this argument until until drop field becomes highlighted then use send key [ your option in list ]

then send key [ enter]

I'm also facing the same issue. have you find any solution to it? If yes, I'll will be very happy if you share the solution.

Hi @Anonymous 


The error @Scenox is facing is here:

Robin.Core.ActionException: Failed to select option(s). ---> System.Exception: List doesn't contain option 'EUR'.

In that case, he/she needs to check if the select element indeed have the EUR option in its menu.

For example:

If I try to select "Mercedes" option from this drop down menu, it throws error because the option doesn't exist:
