Importing XLS files directly into testlink 1.7.4

Postby lshiva86 » Tue Oct 21, 2008 11:26 am

Hi,

I have written a small patch which enables you to directly upload the excel files into testlink 1.7.4.

Once you select XLS option instead of XML and upload the xls file, a perl file will be called in the back end which converts the xls to xml and then the usual code will import that xml.

If someone can please suggest the way to upload the files here, i can upload the code as well as the modifications in testlink.

Thanks a lot,
Lakshmi,

Hi Lakhsmi,

I have creaetd the test case files in excel format, so the patch which you have developed will be of veru good use to the test link users,

So if you give the patch details and the steps to execute the patch to import test case files in excel format it will be helpful for us.


Thanks

Hi veeru,

I have already given the file to test link people. They will upload it in some time. Meanwhile, i have written the file using Spreadsheet: ParceExcel Module of perl. So if you install perl and this particular module in perl, it will be easy for you to use the patch as soon as it is uploaded.

Regards,
Lakshmi.

Importing the xls file

Postby veeru » Thu Oct 23, 2008 7:10 am

Hi Lakshmi,

Thanks for your response. I am not sure how long TestLink people would take to upload that patch. What is the size of that file. Could you please forward that file to my emailid bsv.jaya@gmail.com if possible.
But i know its against the forums openness, still if you do this it will be helpful.


Regards
