    1. This is the code I use for my excel data. maybe It'll come in handy.
    2.  
    3. 1. Retrieve the data from the Excel file:

      javascript
       

     

     

    let excelApp = Sys.OleObject("Excel.Application");
    let workbook = excelApp.Workbooks.Open("path_to_your_excel_file");
    let sheet = workbook.Sheets("Sheet1");
    let data = sheet.Cells(1, 1).Value;

     

     

     
    • 2. Use UI automation to locate and interact with the Status box in your application:

      javascript
       

     

     

    let appProcess = Sys.Process("Your_Application_Process_Name");
    let window = appProcess.Window("Your_Window_Name");
    let statusBox = window.FindChild("Your_Status_Box_Name");
    statusBox.Click();

     

     

     
    • 3. Optionally, add necessary delays or synchronization points before proceeding further.

    • 4. Simulate typing the data into the Status box:

      javascript 
       

     

     

    statusBox.Keys(data);
    //Or for setItem
    statusBox.setItem(data);

     

     

    Make sure to replace "path_to_your_excel_file" with the actual path to your Excel file, "Sheet1" with the name of the sheet in your Excel file, "YourAppProcessName" with the actual process name of your application, and "Your_Status_Box_Name" with the proper name or identifier of the Status box in your application.

    Please let me know if you encounter any issues or if there's any additional information I can provide to assist you further.

    I don't work with Keyword Tests either, scripting is the way forward ğŸ˜

     

    I suggest you break things down into smaller pieces,

    • Record a keyword test to click the Status control, and then select the item Request.
    • Replace 'Request' with a variable
    • Record a keyword test to read data from your source
    • Store the data into a variable

    You should then be able to tie the two scenarios above, into one. 

     

    There's plenty of examples on the SmartBear website such as Data-Driven Testing

      Yep, but in step:

      • Record a keyword test to click the Status control, and then select the item Request.
      • Replace 'Request' with a variable

      -> after selecting Request it will create an object in namemapping with xpath only of Request so can't convert Request to variable

    It's difficult to explain step by step, but you have the option to change e.g. the value of "Front-end" to a variable, where myvariable = "Front-end"

      Yep! but on my website there is no Item tag so there is no keyword ClickItem, currently it in Tag <li>
