Hi @Vishal 9427 ,

You can use a list type variable when you need to retrieve multiple values, one by one. It is basically one-dimensional placeholder for data.

 

Common uses of list variables include:

  • Sending email to multiple recipients
  • Passing different values inside of a loop
  • Searching multiple web addresses

The values can represent either text or numeric data.

After you create the variable, you can use it by inserting the variable in several of the Workbench commands. When the value of the variable is modified, this value is reflected in any subsequent commands that are run by the task.

 

For E.g. 

Variable name: EmailAddress 

Values: abc@gmail.com, example@gmail.com, test@gmail.com

 

Hope this will help.

Dear @Vishal 9427,

 

In Automation Anywhere's IQ Bot, a Barcode list is a collection of barcode formats that the IQ Bot should recognize and extract data from during the process of automating a business task.

Here is an example of a list of barcode formats that you might include in a Barcode list in IQ Bot:

  1. UPC-A (Universal Product Code)
  2. EAN-13 (International Article Number)
  3. Code 39
  4. Code 128
  5. QR Code (Quick Response Code)
  6. Data Matrix
  7. Aztec Code
  8. PDF417

You can customize the list to include any combination of these barcode formats, depending on the specific needs of your business task. For example, if you are automating a process that involves scanning product labels, you might include UPC-A and EAN-13 in your list. If you are automating a process that involves reading data from shipping labels, you might include Code 39 and Code 128 in your list.

To create a Barcode list in IQ Bot, you can go to the IQ Bot web portal and select the "Barcode Lists" option from the main menu. From there, you can create a new list and add the desired barcode formats to the list. You can also edit and delete existing lists as needed.

Hi @Vishal 9427,

 

You can use the List of dictionaries with 7 keys drop-down menu to select the output format for the extracted strings.

If the document has multiple barcodes, multiple dictionaries are used as each dictionary corresponds to a single barcode. Each dictionary has the following seven keys that relate to the various attributes of the barcode in a document:

  • Page number of the document where a barcode is available
  • Type of the barcode
  • Value of the barcode
  • X coordinate of the barcode
  • Y coordinate of the barcode.
  • Width of the barcode
  • Height of the barcode
