How to extract certain information from a datatable depending on the content


A number of web based tables are using groups of cells to organize the information that is being displayed. In such cases we need to extract the entire table and, using loops/conditionals, retreive the info we want depending on content. 

We can implement an easier solution by applying Jquery syntax when configuring the selectors of the extraction procedure and retreive the information during the extraction point without adding any more actions and make our process complicated. By using the "advanced settings" of the web helper's "extract data from web page" action we can construct our custom base selectors for the extraction as seen below:

By applying the "tr:contains('Final status Conference')" the selector will navigate to tr tags with particular inner text.
