Amazing power of QTP for Import & Export of Data from datatable using QTP

Import External Data File

Click on the OK button. Now navigate to an already existing excel file, select and click Open. With this, your excel file will be opened in the datatable completely. Now every column you create in the excel sheet will become a parameter.

This task can also be accomplished programmatically. For this, use the following syntax.


Here FileName is the full path of the Excel table to import.
