Getting error while RQMExcel exporting System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object


Deepak Sharma (159) | asked Oct 13 '16, 11:57 p.m.
Sometimes, I'm getting error while RQMExcel exporting System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object. There're few images which are supposed to be exported. If I remove those images, error goes away. I'm not sure. why this is happening. Can you please help me here.

Using following are few lines from CFG file:- 
// the literal "execution" will be put into the step type tag, so all steps will be of type execution
testscript.steps.type=N
testscript.steps.description=P & "" & image(P)
testscript.steps.title=O
testscript.steps.name=O
testscript.steps.expectedResult=Q & "" & image(Q)
testscript.steps.comment=R
testscript.category term="Test Script Review Status".value=V


Below is the log.

To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this

The application must also be compiled with debugging

<configuration>

</configuration>

When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer

Dear Mehul, Thanks for the reply. 


This issue can occurs with one or few image(s). 
I'm adding those pictures to specific excel rows and column using VBA code(inserting images from file to this excel) then I use RQMExcelImporter tool to start exporting them to RQM. During this I get this error.

Hi Mehul, Thanks for the reply. 


I've tried  'Test Cases made from scripts with images.xls' from sample folder. And its seems to be working okay, 
But when I add new pictures to excel and try to export it then sometimes, following error occurs.

Deepak,


It seems related to specific data format of image, I need data to investigate further. I would suggest to raise a support ticket or file defect.
