How to Open Excel Viewer document

Hi everyone,



Is there a way to work with Excel Viewer in TestComplete?



The computer which executes my tests does not have Excel, so I installed Excel Viewer on it (it's free).



Thank you

Hi Pierrick,



Do you actually use Excel Viewer in your tests, or do you just need to read/write to Excel files? You can work with Excel files programmatically without having Excel installed:

Hi Helen,



Yes I found this solution using  ADO, reading the Excel file as a database. I don't need to write in it, just read. So this solution should be good.



Thanks
