Text formatting in Excel not imported into QAD
I am importing a manual test script created in Excel into QAD 6.0 using the new Import Script Utility. Works pretty good. I have a couple carriage returns in the description field that are not being imported into the new script in QAD. How do you guys deal with this issue? The formatting remains when importing a manual test script created in Word so that may be the only option however our users would prefer using excel.
Thanks in advance.
Re: Text formatting in Excel not imported into QAD
Update. Solution from MicroFocus.
Currently, the characters being removed are by design for the import process. However, the behavior of the tool can be modified via the ImportManualTestWizard project included with the QADirector SDK installation. The function that removes these characters is:
private static string removeInvalidCharacters(string s)
located in the Excel.cs file.
After modifying this function to behave as you wish, the recompiled tool will function as you want.
