Extract the value with Set Variable Value - you'll have a choice in there to pick Object Property, which will then give you the Object Spy to get your object from the screen and you can pick the field in there.
With your string "Order # 52846770", if you know the first 8 characters are always stuff you don't need, then you can do something like aqString.Remove
My text was "Running applications" and I ended up with "applications"
There are other methods like Substring that could be useful too.
Well - using the Video I mentioned, I'm able to get the full object text and write it out to the Log (i.e. ORDER # 52846772), but for the life of me when I try to do the 'aqString.Remove' option you suggest - I can't find it.
Guessing it is buried somewhere in all of the options - or I'm just blind.
Where is it located? Could you provide a screenshot, please?
Now - The million dollar question - How do I take that Order #, and plug it into a Data Base Query?
We have many test cases that would find value in such a thing. Example, when a customer located in a specific ZIP code places an order, they should be serviced by the closest distribution center. So say customer in ZIP '60085' should be serviced by 'I6' -
So - How do we plug the Order Number into the Custom Query (where WBORDN = 52846802)?
Or is there another option available that will get us to the same place?
Gang - Marsha_R was able to provide a solution to my original question about extracting specific text from a string. Thank you very much - this will be handy.
But my follow up 'million dollar' question - as to how to take that text (in my case an Order Number) and then insert that number into a Custom SQL query - can not be done with our current functionality.
So - I've put in a Feature Request. Maybe some day, my friends. Maybe some day.
Obtained value can be stored to the variable. Later, when you compose query expression this value can be utilized either directly or as a parameter. So I am not sure what you have problem with. (Unless you are trying to do everything using only keyword operations and do not use code.)
