    I am new to Blue Prism.

    I have an internal portal wherein i am trying to access a value from a dropdown using Blue Prism automation. I have tried spying the dropdown using various methods (IE HTML, Win 32, UI Automation, Accessibility Mode). I am able to select the dropdown and i see all the values. but i am not able to select any value from dropdown. I am trying to pass the value through Global Send keys but its not working and giving me below error.
