DA cannot locate SAP fields

Post by y_ad2008 on Mon Nov 12, 2018 9:54 am

Hi All,

Does anyone experience, you are not able to locate SAP screen fields in Device Automation?

I am currently using Kapow version 10.3.0.4_260. Appreciate your help.



Thanks.

Hi miq, thank you for the suggestion.

I also face the same problem.

I am using Design Studio 10.3.0.2

I have set the ISA as tree mode already. It solved my problem of locating the Field.

However I found a problem when trying to do 'Extract Value From' step. When using ISA tree mode,
the values extracted are not accurate.



i.e. "T100" is displayed as "HUD"

Do you know how to overcome this?

Can you use OCR extract text from image instead of extract the value of the field?

Hi miq,

Thanks for the response.

Yes, in fact I also tried to use Extract Text from Image it also couldn't give me the correct value. There will be always be some minor problem like '5' become 'S' or '8' become 'B".

Ok I think that you need a work around ie. map your variables so that HUD = T100.
Convert variables step or use a database to map..

Hi miq,

Ok thanks. Will consider doing that.

But there is a SAP field that keep changing from time to time, i.e. the production lot number, e.g. 81114P, 81116Q...if I need to do a mapping that will require some effort.

Hi,,

I had similar issues extracting strings in ISA mode. What helped was changing parameters of the ISA mode for the specific step. Below are possibilities, how to change the settings and find correct one for your app. As an example I was extracting the text from web page "Static Reference or Dynamic Reference. Note that "local" reference is always available by".

This is Default settings

This is one try with different settings

This is another, which gave me good result


Best regards,
Pavel Vraj
