What’s your problem there? Check line 22 of your source code. It has
to be that one of the CSS tags you ask for does not exist in your
page. Instead of immediately asking for, let’s say

page1.css("#GridView1 th")[0].text

you should first check if

page1.css("#GridView1 th")

is not null. Or maybe catch the exception? You should refactor…

Definitively: I can see serious violation of DRY. :slight_smile:
