Problem with storing data in excel file. File gets corrupt and destroyed!!

Hello,

 

So in this new version 3.4, suddenly, when we try to store data in a excel-file, instead of storing the data it destroys the excel file (where it becomes 0kb)...

 

What causes this issue and how can we fix this?

Re: Problem with storing data in excel file. File gets corrupt and destroyed!!

Hey @PtheG,

This should be raised im the ReadyAPI! forum.

Anyway, theres multiple ways of storing data in a spreadsheet, can you please confirm what test step youre using? (Datasink? Groovy? Events?)
Also when you say "it destroys the file", can you please clarify what you actually mean by this.....do you mean the file contents are deleted out of the file so it reverts to a zerobytes file? Just a bit more info to clarify would help a lot.

Cheers

Rich
if this helped answer the post, could you please mark it as 'solved'? Also if you consider whether the title of your post is relevant? Perhaps if the post is solved, it might make sense to update the Subject header field of the post to something more descriptive? This will help people when searching for problems. Ta

Hi,

@richie makes some good points.  For example, the data sink test step has a checkbox that will overwrite or append to an existing file.
