    How to use Robot verification point on Excel spreadsheet in browser?

    User (tpotter@crt.xerox.com.nospam) posted:

    Hi,

    That probably sounds weird so I'll explain. Our web application produces
    reports in Excel and then displays them to the user in a separate web
    browser. When I try to set an object data verification point on the Excel
    spreadsheet in the browser, it says Unknown for the object type. Does
    anything in Robot support this? I just want something simple, like
    verifying that the report ran and is being displayed properly, so I could
    just grab the report title or something.

    Thanks much,

    Ted,

    It's fairly easy to get into excel using OLE code. I'm guessing that you
    could use OLE to reference the excel object in an IE browser and then access
    it that way. If you can figure out a way to get to the spreadsheet then
    "we" could give you lots of help with the excel end of it. Look on the
    microsoft support web page to see what they have to say about getting into
    objects in the browsers.

    Ted,

    Your application is launching a new browser window to display the report. Can
    you set a WIndows VP to check for the existence of the newly launched window in
    response to the report being generated. Once you identify the window you can
    set a context to it and then a lot of things are possible. Probably you can use
    the file/saveas command to save the excel spreadsheet (report) and verify it
    later.
