Hi,

I'm trying to search a supplier bank name in Suppliers R12.
When i recorded *ML to open the Magnifying glass but i want to search using "Bank Number" which the second LOV Value.

I tried using different commans but couldnt make DL change the LOV value.

here is what i did:
- Identify the search type LOV - looks OK
- enter LOV(Bank Number) value in DL table

i get an error that SELECT is an unkown field in the page.

What is the correct way to choose a value in an LOV?

Thanks
Dor

the error is:

Failed to find specified HTML Tag
Tag: SELECT
ID: Categorychoice
Name Categorychoice
type: select-one
link:
number: 1

Hi,

This is a bug in DataLoad where it cannot work with droplists meeting the following criteria:

Tag: SELECT
Type: select-one

We are working on a fix now. In the meantime there are two workaround you can try:

1. Open the Browser Control setup area and clear the ID value for this value, ie delete "Categorychoice" from the ID field. Save this change and re-run the load.

2. If this doesn't work then the only option it to clear all Browser Conbtrol setup for this column and use a conventional DataLoad macro keystroke to select the desired value.

Please let me know if either of those work. I will update this thread when a fix is available.

Thanks,

Jonathan

Hi Jonathan,

Thanks for the reply.
Unfortunatly, option 1 did not work for us.
still won't recognize the HTML Tag.

Option 2 works as a workaround but not as fast and as reliable as browser control.

can you recommend an Id and input i can enter manually at the setup that would recognize the LOV and let me select a value?

We have to create 300 Bank account X 3 instances to start with and we must ID the banks by Bank number and branch number and not by name (the default value for searching)
.
Do you have an estimate for when this bug could be fixed?
Also, we would be happy to test any beta builds

Thanks,
Dor

Another bug I found happens when you use the magnifying glass to open an LOV that you need to search using a different search by value .
for example: create supplier bank account open bank name LOV then search the bank name using "bank number".
The magnifying glass gives the following "link text" on DL setup:
<IMG height=24 alt="Search for Bank Name" src="http://*****.***.****:8001/OA_HTML/cabo/images/cache/clovi.gif" width=24 align=absMiddle border=0>

Stars stand for a deleted server name address.
This works fine for the instance you recorded the load on but requires editing the instance HTTP address for each problematic button when you need to run the load on different instances.

After inspecting other button types I noticed that most of them are recognized Where the src= includes only "/OA_HTML/.." without any limiting server address
