Save or download existing Excel file that is generated by a Desktop local software.
The flow does:
1. Open corporate software + login
2. Clicks on several button and menu to generate a specific report
3. Generates an excel report file
1. can't manage to save or copy the content of the excel
> since its generated by the software and not from me I have no control or reference of it
2. My ideal would be copy the content on to another file I have
3. Or alternatively save locally and copy content
Thanks for the reply.
Yes, I have tried that or at least that is the idea.
But, I can not do it.. because if the name of the Excel is different every time.
Every time I execute the report, it generates a different excel with a different name each time.
and I dont know what the name will be either.
So, I cant automate the process.
My flow goes through all the buttons and clicks
to try and download the file to a downloads folder or even desktop if necessary
and then when I run it for the next report
it does not recognize the UI element since its a different name
Sure, I think as an active excel file and save it before closing.
But my actions are not able to recognize the name of the element.
I tried save excel and close and save as actions.
Hi, its still asking for a specific name of the window
I am not able to close the excel file or even close Excel!
tried adding the image of the UI element of the X to close or the
several steps of File close exit
or using the shortcuts
I need to continue....
so what I am doing is finding it saved it in the drives temp folder
and copying the file to a different folder so as to be able to
retrieve the content of it....
