What software should/could I use??....
Apologies in advance should I be talking to completely the wrong people or if I'm in the wrong forum. I'm looking for a solution to a problem I have and my random surfing has led me here!!
I need some software that can update our database quickly and safely. In the past I have used a cheap macro recorder to follow a set of mouse clicks and key selections - but this trips over itself and does not test the input field for allowable data where applicable. I have read up on a piece of software called QArun which, I believe, does what I after, but this unfortunately is too expensive and maybe slightly too technical for the user. Is there a QArun lite or equivalent??
The data that needs to be loaded is in an excel spreadsheet (Item data) – and the database is a small ERP system that sits on an AS/400.
Again, apologies if I’m talking to the wrong people. Any help / advice greatly appreciated.

There is no QARun lite. QARun is part of a larger package called "QACenter" from Compuware. While it is pricey, it is not as pricey as some of it's competitors. It may be a bit too much if you are using it simply to load data into a database.
If you think that it might be what you need, I would suggest talking to your local Compuware sales rep to see if they can strike a deal with you.
