Exporting Data

To further support information sharing, Enterprise Tester also allows data exports to CSV files. Data can be exported by using the export function from the toolbar above the entity (requirements, test scripts, test script assignments and incidents) grids or from the Export function on the Resources tab.

Exporting from the Grid

You can easily export from the entity grid by using the export function on the toolbar.

Requirements

 

The Export Selection dialog will appear which provides the option to select the encoding and delimiter.  These default to Unicode (UTF-8) (65001) and Comma (,) respectively. For a full list of supported encoding and delimiters please refer to the article Supported Encoding and Delimiters When Exporting Data.

Addition settings include:

Include HeaderWhen this option is selected, the field name will be displayed as the column header
