Solved RPA Get name stored from a cell in a website into a text data item

My project involves checking the data status in terms of date from a website. Here is the sample (the info source is confidential that's why I covered it but each cell in that column contains a unique value) The text I'd like to store in a data item is the highlighted one.

My problem is that the value of that element changes everyday and when I try to spy it, it doesn't work the day after since the value changed. However, when I tried to uncheck the "Name" and check the match index in the Match column in attributes, the get name doesn't work and name won't be stored in the text data item. What can I do for this? Thank you so much!!

Hi Louisa May Jasmine Miguel,

Since it is a webpage are you unable to spy the table and then use Get Table to get the data into a collection.

I tried what you said and it worked even if the data changed. My only problem now is that it won't let me spy the max date column alone, it considers the 3 columns as one, making the content of one row joined together. But I guess I can manipulate it from there. Thank you so much!
