If the Recorder doesnt work as expected in your combo box, change the technology using the follow option:

 

 

Or try Select item by index if possible.

Hi @ajith 2492 ,

 

Can you try once after changing the Recorder package version?

Hi @ajith 2492 

​ Kindly verify if you are selecting  inappropriate properties. Uncheck the properties that should not be used to recognize the element

 

 

Check below KB.

Try if the option Anchor works for you. This option is slower

Hi @Raul Jaimes 

Only ID and Path properties are selected 

 

Both are not ideal to select especially while automating a dynamic environment. Please choose any specific propert like HTML innerText or HTML Value. Also, use a counter variable inside a loop if there are multiple elements available and you want to choose them individually.
