Searching using multiple fields

Post by Nate » Mon Jun 18, 2012 3:07 pm

I am interested in scraping a website that contains multiple input fields. I have been using the premade "Search in any search engine", which works great for a single input field and now I would like to start scraping sites that have two or more variables - EX: Find [SERVICE] in [CITY].

How would you setup this sort of scrape using the principles of having a table with "SearchTerms_Service" and "SearchTerms_City"? Thanks!

You can use the Write from a database to text boxes instead of the Search in any search engine premade. Then, as a first child action, add a Navigate action that simulates click on the search button.
