Running a script that uses Excel API's on a test machine without "Microsoft Excel" installed

Recommended Posts


Hi All,

I have few test cases that use Excel Macros like "_ExcelBookOpen", "_ExcelReadSheetToArray", "_ExcelSheetActivate" and so on.

The script works fine on my work PC as it has "Microsoft Excel" installed.

But, on my test machine, these scrips fail. The reason is, Microsoft Excel is not installed on my test machine.

Is there a way or work around for the Excel macros to work on a machine that does not have microsoft excel or MSOffice installed?

Hi kalyanp,

no and it doesn't make sense, right? for Example: you can't test how a vanilla ice tastes without vanilla ice.
