How to import a table defined inside a Table in RQMWordImporter?

Sarvendra Kumar (1922426) | asked Mar 01 '13, 6:35 a.m.

I wish to import a table drawn inside the cell of a Table from which i am pulling dat to RQM using WordImporter.

Also if an image is present in the Table then how do we import it. I tried with RQMWordImporter 4.0.1 but could not get the table drwan inside the Table and also the image in the RQM Test Script Step.

Also i would like to get to know how to use RichText() function.

Hi Hao Wan

Currently using RQMExcelImporter 4.0.2 RC1 for RQM 4.0.2 RC1 and I am trying to export the nested table as well as image inside a table to the "description" and "expected result" column of a test step of a test script.

Hi sarvendra,
RichText is used to format text in word/excel to xhtml format which will display on RQM web UI.
if you want to upload ".dat" file, you can use the attachment keyword, and image keyword is for image.
if the nested table is in Table("abc").B8
you can use the config like
for more info. please refer to
and some support is addressed in
Excel/Word Importer - rich text support for styles other than "normal" (78945)
if it doesn't work well on Excel Importer 4.0.1 please wait for the Excel Importer 4.0.3 and I just tried with it can support importer table.

Hi Hao Wan

I am trying to import the whole table present inside some cell of the given table  and also image which is present in some cell of the given table,  into the Description and Expected Result column of a Test Script.

I was unable to get it done via the above mentioned way.

Will I have to wait for RQMExcelImporter 4.0.3 or there can be an Enhancement Request raised for current RQMExcelImporter 4.0.2 RC1 ?

Hi sarvendra,

enhancement would not deliver to the RC release, so please wait for the 4.0.3.

 Hello Hao Wan

In your first comment, you mentioned following..

if the nested table is in Table("abc").B8 
you can use the config like 

Can you provide us a sample word and cfg file to demonstrate this? That will be really helpful.

 Hi Suraj,
you can refer to the sample
TestScript in Tables.doc
and change the value of the B8 in the 1st table to rich text format and change the config 
to testcase.Section("","RQM-KEY-TC-DESIGN-TITLE")=RichText(Table(1).B8)

  Hello Hao Wan

Thanks for your reply. But my question was more on the tables. If I have a table inside an expected results cell, how can I import that to RQM without loosing the table. You mean to say using "RichText" will allow us to allow us to import the table for the expected result (or description) ?
