Do the Word and Excel importers work with migrating Test Cases into new deployment of 6,0 CLM?

Cliff Sadler (62717) | asked Dec 15 '15, 10:22 p.m.

This subject seems to stop at version 4.0.x, with warnings that the importer versions do not work with other versions of /qm, even though it's showing up as part of "upcoming" documentation.

Migrating files into Rational Quality Manager

Test assets created in Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Word, and XML files can be migrated into Rational® Quality Manager as test artifacts.

About this task

The Rational Quality Manager Excel and Word Importers allow the Excel and Word applications to export test data to Rational Quality Manager through HTTP. By using this utility, these applications can directly export test artifacts in a well-defined XML format. The XML content can then be imported to a Rational Quality Manager server using the RQM Reportable REST API. For more information and instructions on installing and using these utilities, see

Am I missing finding a solution for importing Word and Excel based Test Cases into a new deployment of CLM, or is this the path?

You can still use RQMExcelWordImporter to export test case to RQM 6.0.x. In general, you may want to use v6.0.x importer only for v6.0.x RQM Server.(same principle in v4.0.x and 5.0.x).
6.0 Importer may have problem in importing requirements or link requirements to test artifacts. If you only concern on test cases, it should be ok.

I cannot find any reference to a v6.0 importer.  Everything seems to stop at 4.0.6

anyone have experience with using v4.0.6 importer with 6.0?  Really just interested in importing Test Cases at this point.

As noted by Don, you need to use 6.0 version of the Excel/Word Import tool if you want to import to a 6.0 version of QM

The 6.0 version of the import tool can be found here: → Products → Quality Manager → Downloads→ Rational Quality Manager 6.0 → All Downloads tab → Extra's :

There will be a Read Me that is included in the archive file for the 6.0 version
