Hi Andrew, 

Thanks a lot for such very informative videos.

I have tried dozens of different websites but have not got the login pop-up window shown on the video . I  even created an account on wise owl and used the URL https://www.wiseowl.co.uk/user/private and also did not see the login window.  Am i missing anything?  Any website I should use to test that login code?

Thanks and looking forward to hearing from you.

Hi Andrew, 

I hope you and your family are keeping safe during these tough times.

First of all, we can’t really thank you enough for videos and another resources you made available in this very informative site. I have really benefited from your videos - and in particular during the current lockdown - (which was a great opportunity for many to improve their overall skills). I have already started using what I have learned to automate many of the tasks related to my work.

With regards to web scrapping videos: there is still two/three things that I can’t find: 

1. Filling an auto complete/auto select text. For example : entering a city name in Booking.com ( data entered should also be verified/matches from the auto- complete saved city , which is normally the first city they appear in top, example, putting London > London, then Greater London, United Kingdom option would be the correct one). As you can see, the data entered needs to be verified / matches first before hitting the search button otherwise an error would occur. 

2. Choosing travel/return data from the pop-up selection board.(this one is a direct choice rather than an auto-complete option like the city choice).

3. Pretty close to 2:  choosing date, month and then year before hiiting go on https://www.imf.org/external/np/fin/data/rms_sdrv.aspx.. (I can then parse the result in Excel using one of the method you explained in your videos) .  Note please that I was able to use URL concatenation on other section on the site, but this one as you can see requires to use the drop down method instead. 

Many thanks once again and looking forward to hearing from you

Stay safe
