    I want to Search a piece of string(Text) in a Full paragraph which i have stored in a dataitem (text)

    InStr() returns zero when the text you searched for doesn't exist within the String. Therefore, to convert it to a flag: InStr([Paragraph], [String])>0

    Blue Prism - Surface Automation (Citrix)

    Hi @soonerorlater Surface Automation in Blue Prism is achievable. Depending on which version you're using (v5 or v6) it will be more difficult. Both can achieve the desired outcome but SA has been greatly improved in v6. Generally people tend to find that UiPath is much better equipped to...

    "Unable to match any Active Accessibility elements to the supplied query terms" while working in Object Studio

    I'm confused, is the process now working? Or do you still have an issue?

    Strange indeed, I'm using BP5 and IE11, with HTML as the spy mode and have no issues. When you say "crashed", there's no error message or anything? Blue Prism is just freezing?

    Hi Russ, Hope you're well. Just attempted this myself and didn't find any issues. I spied the user profile icon as you mentioned and it works fine. Possibly a silly question but I presume you can automate other websites without any issue? Could you share a screenshot of your Application...

    "Unable to match any Active Accessibility elements to the supplied query terms" while working in Object Studio

    Hi @RiojaAlberto Usually when people say something works in Object Studio but not when ran from a Process, the issue is related to speed. Are you using Wait Stages in your object to ensure the element exists before using the Navigate Stage?

    Queue Error

    Get Next Item gets an item from the queue one at a time.. If you need to access all 50 records at once, consider whether a queue is required. Or do you really need to access all 50, would 1 at a time be suitable? It is best to always use work queues where possible.

    Queue Error

    Hi @vinay That means you're attempting to mark an item as complete/exception but you don't have the item locked anymore. I suspect you marked your first item as complete but didn't go and get another item from the queue before trying to mark as complete again. You need to link back to Get...

    POP up

    Hi @Sundeep4sandy I'm curious as to why this message needs to be displayed. You seem to suggest that you're asking people not to touch the machine whilst the OCR is in progress? Blue Prism should be ran on stand-alone virtual machines that aren't being worked on by anybody else. @VJR I'm not...

    Decision stage not working

    Hi @Cris800 Why is there a 12 in your function? Instead of: DateDiff(0, [12,[dateOfBirth], Today()) it should be DateDiff(0, [[dateOfBirth], Today()) Could you provide a screenshot of your process please? Deprecated means that something is generally discouraged from use because it's...

    Thanks Michael, will watch out for any reply :)

    Html web-page element, can only use the Blue Prism element once.

    Hi Michael, It sounds like the website you're automating may not be the most reliable. As such, you'll need to find the correct set of attributes to match on that will return a reliable match each time. For example, Value is an attribute that will often change and therefore shouldn't be matched...
