Many a times you may need to interact with text files using QTP. Interaction can be(but not limited to) in the form of reading input from a file, writing output to a file. This post describe in detail "File handling using QTP".
FSO stands for File System Object. This is used to support text file creation and manipulation through theTex tStream object and is contained in the Scripting type library
(Scrrun.dll) The FSO Object Model has a rich set of properties, methods and events to process folders and files.
Dim fso, file, file_location
file_location = "C:\file_location"
Set fso =Cre at e Ob je ct(\u201cScripting.FileSystemObject\u201d)
Set file = fso.CreateTextFile(file_location, True) // True--> file is to be overwritten if it
already exists else false
Set file= fso.OpenTextFile("C:\file_location", ForWriting, True)
//2nd argument can be ForReading, ForWriting, ForAppending
//3rd argument is "True" if new file has to be created if the specified file doesn\u2019t exist
else false, blank signify false.
Use ReadLine() method
Set file= fso.OpenTextFile("C:\file_location", ForReading, True) //2nd argument should
always be "ForReading" in order to read contents from a file
Do while file.AtEndofStream <> True
You can use Write() or WriteLine() Methods to write text into a file. The difference
between the Write() and WriteLine() Method is that the latter automatically inserts a
new line character while the former doesn\u2019t insert a new line character.
Set file= fso.OpenTextFile("C:\file_location", ForWriting, True) //2nd argument should
always be "ForWriting" in order to write contents to a file
This action might not be possible to undo. Are you sure you want to continue?
