    Get Element , Data-Automation-ID

    Hi,

    I am so far good on entering text value by getting web element ID. but i came across "Data_Automation-ID", and i get debug error saying "Object not found 424"

    input tabindex="0" class="gwt-TextBox WGUY" aria-label="search" type="text" placeholder="search" data-automation-id="globalSearchInput"></input

    Can you please tell me, if there is a way to do it? Like other element ID, i want to enter text value in input filed of "globalSearchInput"

    Thanks

    Thanks for your reply.

    Global ie As InternetExplorer
    Global lastrow As Long
    Global a, b, c As String
    Global i, j, k, l As Integer

    Sub AUTO()

    Set ie = CreateObject("InternetExplorer.Application")
    ie.Visible = True

    ie.Navigate Trim("https://Id3-impl.source.com/osourc/d/search.htmld?q=create+position")
    Call pageload(ie)


    For i = 3 To Sheets("Shiva").Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
    delay 4

    ie.document.getElementById("promptOption-gwt-uid-2").Click ' This works
    delay 5

    ie.document.getElementById("globalSearchInput").Value = Trim(Sheets("Shiva").Range("A" & i).Value) ' error 424, object not found

    Re: Get Element , Data-Automation-ID

    hello,

    Link is valid, but as it inside the office one unless you have access to the link it wont open.
    I did code the codes as per rule. But when i submit it, it gives me error that due to site firewall i should not be putting HTML code.

    Hence i had to do it like this.
