How to compare graphs inside excel files

Post by diogogmaio » Fri Jul 29, 2016 10:18 am

Hello everyone

Just done with comparing excel files running a ranorex script that compares cell by cell, row by row and column by column and it works great.
Now, i am in the need to enhance the script.
I want to understand if through exceldataconnector or something related I can compare graphics inside an excel file (both excel files should have the same graphic/image).
Do you think this can be achieved?

Thanks in advance.

Hello diogogmaio,

Unfortunately, it's not possible to retrieve pictures from the Excel data connector. Only "string" values can be retrieved.
