import image as well as text(rich/plain) in a Test script step's description and expected result column

Sarvendra Kumar (1922426) | asked Apr 23 '13, 5:05 a.m.

the RQMExcelImporter provides way to import Image, text(rich/plain) to a test script's "description" and "expected result" column.

but while trying to import both image as well as text it did not import both in the mentioned columns.

later i tried to import text 1st then import image later in the mentioned columns so as the cumulative result will be the same as of importing both.

but the text which i had imported in step1st was erased for all steps, and the image was imported in the prescribed place.

Can you try the excel sheet & cfg file with name : "Test Cases made from scripts with images"

Location : <RQM Excel Exporter>\samples
default loc on Win 7 OS : C:\Program Files (x86)\ibm\RQMExcelImporterNew\Samples

Best regards

I have the same question - some expected results are text and some are images.  The .cfg seems to only allow 1 or the other:

// testscript.steps.expectedResult=H

If I uncomment the 2nd entry, the exporter throws an exception about a duplicate.

The image is imported just fine, but other test steps with just text are left blank.

Has anyone come up with a workaround?

one way is to use "&"
testscript.steps.expectedResult=H & image(H) 
&  The ampersand symbol is used to add two or more bits of data to the same field. The data can be a mix of items such as:  testcase.description=”my description:” & C4

Hello @Lorinda Kress

try this following config statement.

testscript.steps.expectedResult=H &" "& image(H)

The column H of your excel sheet will have thetext as well as the image.
