Export requirements from Excel to Spira: Error "Object reference not set to an instance of an object."

Friday, June 7, 2013
I tried to export requirements from an excel sheet to Spiratest. I filled the template with requirements from another excel worksheet.
The export failed with an error message: "Object reference not set to an instance of an object." at the end of each requirement. What's wrong?

Hi Peter

Generally that error occurs if you're trying to insert new requirements and you accidentally populate the 'Requirement #' field. That should be left blank for new imports.

I also received this error.  I do not have any requirements.  I have left the default Requirements page as is.

I have attached a screenshot:

Another thought.  The folders already exist in SpiraTest.  I have compared the folder names.  They are identical.
