Often you want to be able to parameterize your Rapise tests to have a common set of test functions that can use different combinations of test data. You can use a MS-Excel spreadsheet to store the test data and use Rapise to read out the matching values. This articles provides a sample for doing this.

In this example we have a spreadsheet that contains some lookup data:

Test Test Data
Test1 valuetest1
Test2 valuetest2
Test3 valuetest3
Test4 valuetest4
Test5 valuetest5

We want to dynamically query this Excel sheet and find the test data associated with a specific case. For example if we query for "Test2" we want to return back the test data "valuetest2".

The function that will do this uses the built-in Spreadsheet object:

function FindValueFromFile(filename, valueToFind)
 //Open the spreadsheet
 var success = Spreadsheet.DoAttach(filename, 'Sheet1');
 Tester.Assert('Open Spreadsheet', success);
 //Now loop through and see if we can find that value
 var rowCount = Spreadsheet.GetRowCount();
 Spreadsheet.SetRange(2, rowCount + 1, 1, 2);

 //Loop through all the rows and find the match
 var data = '';
  if (Spreadsheet.GetCell(0) == valueToFind)
   data = Spreadsheet.GetCell(1);
 return data;

Attached to this article is a zipfile containg the complete test project.
