When I use the Get Table command for a table using the Recorder > Capture option in an application called Success Factors I get results that are not visible.  For example, If I have the below one record (my record) in the search results…

Thanks so much for the suggestions.  I look forward to participating in this community more in the future, especially once I have a little bit more experience with the software.


@Pradeep Kintali - I will definitely use the DataTable Filter option in the future.  Thanks for this useful bit of information.
