Im not sure how to ask this intelligently so please be gentle!
My scenario is running daily reports from a web based platform.
Having the source of the reports be web based Im constantly having to adjust the macro because the web site will do an update and some element on a page with shift a few pixels or something. So I am trying to move away from image based verification of anything in my macro. (I am a beginner in all of this so image based verification is my jam because i actually know what an image is!)
The biggest issue right now is downloading a pdf generated in chrome. In the pictures I uploaded you'll see what i hope is a self explanatory rundown of my issue. I am hoping that someone can help me find a better way of getting that report to download, maybe using java or something where I can side step the pop-up issue. Every day 5 years of separate monthly reports like that have to be run and the pdf report downloaded. All that to say that each pdf will be different if that matters at all.
Right now I am "right clicking" and moving the mouse to a picture of "save as" and then having the mouse click that to get the report to download, but I would love to find something more along the lines of the "click browser link" stuff that doesn't include any mouse movements or depend on any image verification.
I included the "inspect" info from Chrome for both the pdf report and the download button if that helps at all.
If any of this makes sense and someone is able to help me - honestly I will probably shed many tears of the purest of joy that has ever existed in the history of the world. Luckily you won't be able to see that happening as I'm pretty sure it would make both of us quite uncomfortable but it'll be going down nonetheless. Ive spent days and days trying to get this to work so my wife doesn't have to do run these reports each night (it takes hours) and I am failing miserably!
Thank you thank you thank you for reading through all this and for offering any advice you can!
