AutoFillBlankCells Post-Processing Function

AutoFillBlankCells Post-Processing function can be used to fill the blank cells from the next top most cell in our extracted field result. For Example, I have this scraping agent "AutoFillBlankCells Function Example(Post-Processing)" and if you look on the "URL" field, it's empty after first row because this table is extracted from this URL, So there is single URL but multiple rows as per number of records found in the table. So, we can use the built-in "AutoFillBlankCells " Post-Processing function here to fill the "URL" value in it's next corresponding cells as well.
