    Hi All,



    hank you for the updates.  I was able to do by the below code.



    Sub ReadExcel

    QryXls_GetData("C:\driversheet.xls")

    End Sub



    'sFileName= xls file name with path

    'Sheetname = table name

    'VRstatmt = where statment for query

    'Colname=Column name to fetch value from

    '==============================================

    Public Function QryXls_GetData( sFileName)

    Const adOpenStatic = 3

    Const adLockOptimistic = 3

    Const adCmdText = "&H0001"



    sql_text="Select * FROM [driver$]where [Scenario Required]='yes'"

     '1) Create an ADODB connection and recordset

    Set objConnection = CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")

    msgbox(sFileName)

    '2) Open connection'

    objConnection.Open "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;" & "Data Source=" & sFileName & ";" & "Extended Properties=""Excel 8.0;HDR=Yes;"";"



    '3) Create a Recordset'

    Set objRecordSet = CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")



    '4) Execute SQL and store results in reocrdset'

    objRecordset.Open sql_text , objConnection, adOpenStatic, adLockOptimistic, adCmdText



    '5) Read all fields data   and store in a array'

    'For Multiple records

    '=================

    ReDim  SQLExpectedData(objRecordset.recordcount -1)

    For i=0  to objRecordset.recordcount -1  'objRecordset.fields.item(1).properties.count

        SQLExpectedData(i)= objRecordset.fields("Test case")

        functionname = "call "& objRecordset.fields("Test case")

          msgbox (functionname)

            execute functionname

        objRecordset.movenext

        msgbox(SQLExpectedData(i))

     

    Next



    '6) Close and Discard all variables '

    objRecordset.Close

    objConnection.Close

    End Function

    It will be something like this:




        While Not testingsheet.IsEOF


             If (testingsheet.Value("Test Case required") = "Yes") Then


                  ' use scenario to do test


             End If


             Call testingsheet.Next


        WEnd

    Hi Srikala Gudavalli,





    I don't understand, for reading data from excel why you create - 



      '1) Create an ADODB connection and recordset



      2-  Open connection'



     objConnection.Open "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;" & "Data Source=" & sFileName & ";" & "Extended Properties=""Excel 8.0;HDR=Yes;"";



    3)-  Create a Recordset'



     '4) Execute SQL and store results in reocrdset'



    have you used Open Office instead of Microsoft Office or using "Office Starter" .



    because normally we want to work with Microsoft Office (Excel) we can create object of Excel like below



    Set Exo = CreateObject("Excel.Application") ot



    Set Exo = Sys.OleObject("Excel.Application")



    Exo.Workbooks.Open("Excel File Path")



    .

    .

    .

    .





    Could you please share/Explain it in more.



    Thanks

    Ravik
