This video shows how to use Select and Option elements in Selenium for VBA to choose items from drop down lists on websites. You'll learn how to identify which type of drop down list you're working with and how to use the SelectElement class in Selenium to make working with drop down lists easy. You'll learn several ways to select an option from a select list and how to deal with cascading drop down lists. As a bonus, you'll learn how to download a file using a combination of Selenium and the URLDownloadToFile function.

Hi Andrew, firstly, thank you for the great tutorial videos on Selenium.
I am trying to use it to input data into an online form that is very user unfriendly and takes too long to enter the information required.
I have encountered a dropdown selection list where it does not seem to be "interactable". Even if I invoke a click to the list to expand the options and though I can see the option I want, when I try to make it select that option (either by value or by text when cycling through the elements) I get an error which reads "element is not currently visible and may not be manipulated". I just can't figure this one out! Any suggestions would be most welcome!
