Before I start, I have to say I'm really excited about this software. This may increase productivity for my business enormously.
I want WinAutomation to read from a website that has a continuously updating table and append the row from the table on the website to a text file. It should only write to the text file when there is a new entry or an entry has closed.
WinAutomation needs to be continuously monitoring the website for new entries to the table on the website and the disappearance of entries in the table.
I tried using "Download From Web" with "If" statements that say if there is some text, write something to a text file. It does not seem to work.
I then tried using "Download From Web" to just "Save to disk" for the "Return Data" field. It just creates a file called Timeout.aspx. That file has the main layout of the website but not the data that it is displaying. I'm guessing it is timing out somehow even though the website is displaying fine on my home and work computers while I'm using WinAutomation.
