Hi, I implemented export action using above samples. I was able to export successfully.
Here are few suggestions:
1. Make sure the User that use in excel to export should have 'Data base Administrator' role assigned in RQM project area
2.  To use Excel Importer in RQM:

1.            Data Administrator Role should be assigned to the User

2.            To assign this role:

 Edit Project Area -> Overview -> Members -> <user> -> Process Roles -> Data Migration Administrator

It seems like there's an issue in your config file where you map attributes. Sounds like a mismatch.
Or there could be some syntax difference for that particular row in your excel sheet.
Could you pls paste a sample row, along with its headings?
Also give the config file part that maps excel columns with test case attributes.

Path Test Case Name Subject Step No. Action Expected Priority Comments/Queries
  Parent TC001_TS034_To check for "Family " type Objective:
To check Relationship details for "Family " type

The Parent is created in the system and has been selected.

user should be able to see the Relationship details for "Family" type.

Business rule Covered:

Test Data Req:
Refer the test data Requirement

Back-end/Third party systems involved:

Step 1 Login into the System with User ID and Password.

Test data ID:- 
User successfully logged in to the system.   I’m just a lowly comment so there is no worth talking to me.
  Parent TC001_TS034_To check for "Family " type   Step 2 Go to the toolbar select the "Maintain Relationships". The system brings up the ‘Maintain Relationships’ area layout with a list of types    I’m just a lowly comment so there is no worth talking to me.

Config file

// This configuration file creates a test case with each test script and links them.
// The linking is accomplished by self referential data

// Start looking for scripts after row 2

// use the data in the first row of a found script's column B

// the literal "execution" will be put into the step type tag, so all steps will be of type execution
testscript.steps.expectedResult=F name="comment"=H

// a new script starts when we encounter an empty row
// we want to use the data we got for each test script to create a test case

// by refering to the testscript's field instead of the column that data comes from
// the tool will also create links to each of the test scripts.

as the error message is "(403) Forbidden."
is the user executing the export to repository function assigned the role to save test case and test script
the role can be set in RQM admin page -> Project area -> permission -> project configuration.

Hi, Sonali Lekurwale,
why should assign the "Data Migration Administrator" role to the user?
My process has been customized and there is no the "Data Migration Administrator" role.
