Folks,

I have a client who has migrated from one case management system to another.  The new software developers have converted the various databases across with the exception of one.  For whatever reason they can't do it. I have contacted the old system developers and they can't even export the data.  We have collectively tried everything.

I've been looking at a few possible ways to export the data, one of which is Ui Path Studio.  It basically can record your keystrokes, mouse clicks and field selections (amongst other very advanced features) but it didn't do what I needed (or I didn't know how to use it).  Its a bit like a word macro builder.

Does anyone know of something similar I could try? I'm trying to automate the process of opening a record, copying the 5 fields into a spreadsheet, moving to the next record and repeating.

Thanks
