Determining a users dynamic id Empty Determining a users dynamic id

Hi all

I've read quite a few forum topics and I have always managed to stumble across something that will get my problem solved.
But this time I'm going to register and sign in and write up a query.

I'm a bit of a newbie and to testing in general, so you can imagine how relieved I was to come across Selenium.

I am testing a production app with the production database.
I create a new user and I have to test links like

these are all paths from href links stored in a table.

the actual html source looks like:

Your RTO
Admin B

After the test I have to delete the user

Obviously, every time I run the test I'm going to get a different number and it will have a different table row number.
At this stage the tests I have recorded using Selenium IDE are useless the moment the user it creates is on a different row to the one that I made when I recorded the initial test.

Surely a tool as powerful as Selenium can manage this... I have looked at "storeAttribute" but I can't see how to use it anywhere. Or even if it is the appropriate construct.

I feel like I should have found an existing answer. (If so then maybe I have just been working too late ? Smile

Cheers and looking forward to my first ever reply from a forum post (Query, that is).
