    phanikumargk28,

    Please do not triple and cross-post.

    The "Mercury Quality Center Microsoft Excel Add-in Guide" should contain detailed instructions on how to import (export) data from Excel to TD.

    There is no way you can upload test set into TD from Excel you can only upload Requirements, Tests and defects.

    Re: TestDirector

    Narayana;
    I think you had better read your QC Manuals again, there will be a test! In fact, here is a quote describing the MS Excell Add-in:
    Microsoft Excel Add-in


    The Microsoft Excel Add-in enables you to export your test plan, requirements, or defects in Microsoft Excel directly to Quality Center. You can view the exported test plan in the test plan tree, the exported requirements in the requirements tree, and the exported defects in the defects grid.

    Re: TestDirector

    Well, actually, narayana is right. You cannot use the MS Excel Add-in to export (or "upload") Test Sets into the TD/QC Test Lab. The Add-in can only be used for exporting Requirements, Tests (to the Test Plan), and Defects.

    However, I am curious as to why narayana decided to respond to a month+ old thread, with "not very helpful" information, that had already adequately been answered.

    <font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica">Nope. The Add-in description AND narayana are both correct.

    The MS Excel Add-in can export:
    1. Requirements - into the Requirements Module
    2. Tests - into the Test Plan Module
    3. Defects - into the Defects Module

    However, it cannot export:
    4. Test Sets - into the Test Lab Module

    I've included the original quotes in question with numbers added for clarity.

    Microsoft Excel Add-in

    The Microsoft Excel Add-in enables you to export your (2.)test plan, (1.)requirements, or (3.)defects in Microsoft Excel directly to Quality Center. You can view the exported (2.)test plan in the test plan tree, the exported (1.)requirements in the requirements tree, and the exported (3.)defects in the defects grid.

    Re: TestDirector

    So the Add-in description is wrong??
    What's with that?

    How about using the downloadable one from the support site??

    Here's what is stated on the Knowledge base 21 Dec 2005:

    Problem Description: Can defects, users, test plans or requirements be imported from Excel or Word to TD

    Are there ways to import defects, tests, test plans, users or requirements from Microsoft Excel or Microsoft Word to TestDirector?


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Solution: Location of Excel and Word macros

    TestDirector provides a Microsoft Word macro and a Microsoft Excel macro to help in transferring data into a TestDirector project. The MS Word macro allows you to export your existing test documents or requirements in Microsoft Word directly to TestDirector's test plan tree or requirements tree. The MS Excel macro has the capability of exporting requirements, tests, users (see NOTE below), and defects into your TestDirector project. These macros can be found by searching the Plug-Ins link (TD 7.2 and TD7.0i) or Add-ins link (TD 7.5 and above) from TestDirector. There are also example macros that can be found on the Customer Support Website in the Downloads section.

    Install the macros from the Plug-Ins page link when bringing up TestDirector 7.2 and 7.0i.

    1. Log into the TestDirector on the client machine. Use the URL http://ServerName/TDBin/default.htm.

    2. Click on the "Plug-Ins Page" link.


    3. Click on the "More TestDirector Add-Ons" link.

    4. Click on the appropriate "TestDirector Home Page" link.

    5. Click on the MS Word macro link or the MS Excel macro link, depending on which macro you would like to install.

    6. You should see directions on how to install the macro AND directions on how to use the macro. Please follow the directions.

    Install the macros from the Add-ins page link when bringing up TestDirector 7.5 and above.

    1. Log into TestDirector on the client machine. Use the URL http://ServerName/TDBin/default.htm.

    2. Click on the "Add-ins Page" link.


    3. Click on the "More TestDirector Add-ins" link.

    4. Click on the Microsoft Word Add-in link or the Microsoft Excel Add-in link, depending on which macro you would like to install.

    5. You should see directions on how to install the macro AND directions on how to use the macro. Please follow the directions.

    There are also macros that have been modified and placed on the Customer Support Website under Downloads -&gt; TestDirector -&gt; MS Office Macro examples. These are not fully supported but have increased features for exporting. These macros were created by Mercury engineers and can be modified by you if you have knowledge of Visual Basic programming. For directions on how to bring up the Word macro so that you can modify it, refer to the article: Problem ID 13123 - How to view the source code for the TestDirector Word Macro. The directions are basically the same for the Excel macro.

    This is applicable to:

    Product:
    TestDirector 7.0 - 7.2
    TestDirector 7.5 - 7.6
    TestDirector 8.0
    TestDirector for Quality Center 8.0
    TestDirector for Quality Center 8.2
