Once RQMExcelImporter is installed, it adds one submenu named "RQM" under menu "Add-Ins". On clicking on that menu items pop up is coming which eventually does some processing. Is there any APIs which we can call and do the same processing instead of going through excel menu?

You cannot invoke the RQM Excel/Word Importer from outside of Excel/Word.  However, the RQM Excel/Word Importer is based on the RQM Reportable API, which can be invoked from any HTTP client.

Hi Paul,

Does that mean we can reproduce same functionality which is currently provided by RQM Excel / Word mporter Plugin using RQM Reportable API?

Could you please share your thought on it.

The RQM Excel/Word Importer uses a configuration file to parse Excel/Word document to create XML files.  These XML files are POSTed/PUT to RQM using the RQM Reportable API, which you can reproduce independent of the RQM Excel/Word Importer.
