Rational Robot support policy MS Office objects

Technote (FAQ)


What is the support policy of IBM Rational Robot for Microsoft Office objects?


You want to record a script within an MS Office member, like Excel. When you try to record a script, Rational Robot fails to recognize the objects.


Rational Robot does not support the MS Office objects The reason is that MS Office contains custom controls. To circumvent, you can try to use the scripting host to call MS Office APIs. Alternatively you can contact IBM Business Partner AppPoint. This Buisness Partner develops add-ons to Robot, so-called proxies.

This function has been identified as a request for enhancement under RATLC00853075.
