Binding Data from Different Source Files in one module

Post by erik » Fri Aug 04, 2017 3:18 am

Greetings,

I am Erik and I have just started to use Ranorex and not quite familiar
with coding so I would like to ask the following.

I am trying to compare 2 data from 2 different data sources (excel file, different sheets)
in a single module. Is it possible to bind data from different files in a single user/code module?

Highly appreciate any advice regarding this.

Best regards,
Erik

Hi Erik,

As you have probably already discovered, you can only bind one data connector per test container. To access multiple data connectors in one module, you will need to nest test containers. Child modules have access to all parent test container's data connectors.
