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:

TestTest Data

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 = '';
	while (Spreadsheet.DoSequential()) 
		if (Spreadsheet.GetCell(0) == valueToFind)
			data = Spreadsheet.GetCell(1);
	return data;
