IRPA - issues with capturing SAP variants and Reports


I testing out the IRPA functional with SAP, and overall like it but I keep getting stuck in certain situations which are preventing me from continuing on.

The two big issues I keep running into are:

1. Executing reports and then saving as excel output to folder

I keep running into this situation - I input the values I want to execute the report (and capture the screen). However, once I am in the output screen, I want to capture this screen so then I can select the "export" options. However, usually this screen is the same as the screen where I have the selection criteria - so I can't uniquely capture the recognition criteria - See attachments

for this.



2.. I can't pick the specific variants -

Instead of entering in data in the selection screen, I would want to pick a variant - however, I only can capture the general variant catalog - I am unable to select a specific variant to be used for this. See attachments


Any advise or documents you could point me to on how to do this?

    1) To capture unique field in your page, you need to peek the right criterias. For each field you want to capture, you have to be sure that the criterias are unique and that they allow you to recognize the element. Here the problem is that the criterias are the same for two different elements in your page.

    2) You should be able to display the "tree" view in which you'll see all the element in your page. From there you'll be able to select any fields.

    1.Try to use MustExist and MustNotExist to distinguish two pages.

    Here're some tips you can follow:

    As you can see in the screenshot.The icon circled in red only appears in the second page (report2).

    1-1.Define it as an object in report2 and tick the Must Exist option.

    1-2.Right click the object and copy it.

    1-3.Go to first page (report1) and right click on any object you've already defined -> paste it.

    1-4.Set the copied object as Must Not Exist in report1.

    Then you can see two pages turn to green as they are correctly recognized.

    2.When you define an object of SAP GUI, you can verify the object type in the Captured Data area.Then try to fine the suitable method in SDK guide.
