Code to Read Data From Excel Through QTP or UFT or How to Read Data From Excel Through QTP or UFT?

1st method:

datatable.importsheet "path of the excel file.xls",source sheetID,desination sheetID
n = datatable.getsheet("desination sheetname").getrowcount
for i = 1 to n
columnname = datatable.getsheet("destination sheetname").getparameter(i).name
if colunmname = knowncolumnname then
value = datatable.getsheet(destinationsheetname).getparameter(i)
end if

The more fine tuned way to code…..

2nd method:

set objexcel = createobject("excel.application")
Set objWorkbook = objExcel.WorkBooks.Open("path of the file.xls")
Set objDriverSheet = objWorkbook.Worksheets("name of the sheet")
columncount = objDriverSheet.usedrange.columns.count
rowcount = objDriverSheet.usedrange.rows.count
for i = 1 to colunmcount
columnname = objDriversheet.cells(i,1)
if columnname = knowncolumnname then
for j = 1 to rowcount
fieldvalue = objdriversheet.cells(j,i)
end if

How to Compare two Sheets?

'The CompareSheets method compares between two sheets.

'if there is a difference between the two sheets then the value in the second sheet
'will be changed to red and contain the string:
'"Compare conflict - Value was 'Value2', Expected value is 'value2'"
'sheet1, sheet2 - the excel sheets to be compared
'startColumn - the column to start comparing in the two sheets
'numberOfColumns - the number of columns to be compared
'startRow - the row to start comparing in the two sheets
'numberOfRows - the number of rows to be compared
Function CompareSheets(sheet1, sheet2, startColumn, numberOfColumns, startRow, numberOfRows, trimed) 'As Boolean
Dim returnVal 'As Boolean
returnVal = True
'In case that one of the sheets doesn't exists, don't continue the process
If sheet1 Is Nothing Or sheet2 Is Nothing Then
CompareSheets = False
Exit Function
End If
'loop through the table and fill values into the two worksheets
For r = startRow to (startRow + (numberOfRows - 1))
For c = startColumn to (startColumn + (numberOfColumns - 1))
Value1 = sheet1.Cells(r, c)
Value2 = sheet2.Cells(r, c)
'if 'trimed' equels True then used would like to ignore blank spaces
If trimed Then
Value1 = Trim(Value1)
Value2 = Trim(Value2)
End If
'in case that the values of a cell are not equel in the two worksheets
'create an indicator that the values are not equel and set return value
'to False
If Value1 <> Value2 Then
Dim cell 'As Excel.Range
sheet2.Cells(r, c) = "Compare conflict - Value was '" & Value2 & "', Expected value is '" & Value1 & "'."
Set cell = sheet2.Cells(r, c)
cell.Font.Color = vbRed
returnVal = False
End If
CompareSheets = returnVal
End Function

    I must show my thanks to this writer for bailing me out of this type of condition. As a result of exploring throughout the online world and meeting ideas which were not beneficial, I assumed my life was done. Being alive without the strategies to the problems you have solved as a result of your write-up is a critical case, and the ones that would have badly damaged my entire career if I hadn’t discovered your web site. Your own skills and kindness in playing with every item was vital. I am not sure what I would’ve done if I hadn’t discovered such a step like this. It’s possible to at this time look forward to my future. Thanks a lot so much for your reliable and results-oriented help. I will not be reluctant to suggest your site to any individual who would need tips on this topic.
