WEB - SCRAPE DATA
Activity «Scrape data» can be found in section «Web».


Activity returns the structured data from the websites. Activity works with 2 types of sctructured data: with "table" tag and data, which are not typeset within html table, yet are logically combinde into list.
For faster work with non-table data it is recommended to use special helper for structured data scrapping (button on the main Studio panel). With the usage of this helper it is possible to form the structure for the data which will be written into table.
For work with table data it is as simple as setting up a search criteria for element with "Table" tag on page.
In case the table or data within the table are divided into separate pages, it is possible to set the element which defines the link to the next page. In that case robot will automatically go through number of pages.
