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?

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]
