Power Automate and SAP - Power A doesn't recognize a SAP button help!!



Does anyone know why Power Automate is not recognizing this SAP button? I'm trying to add a new UI element, but Power Automate is selecting the wrong button. Let me show you a picture:



I want the button that is enclosed by blue to be the new UI element, but the Power Automate selector is choosing the wrong button. I can't continue my automatization if I don't fix this 😞 


Please help!!

I have seen this problem in different situations.
One could be as simple as a restart of PAD.
I have also seen it, if the display scaling is set to anything else but 100%

Hi @AbigailR 

When it comes to SAP, I recommend that, if your security /SAP Basis allows - use built-in SAP automation (recorder) - it produces VB code that you can then call from PAD action.

afaik this is the most reliable way to automate SAP

Indeed, I second this approach as this helps in many cases where the elements shift around based on the form changing due to upstream processes or dynamic values in the selectors.
