Hi,

I'm not quite sure I understand correctly, what exactly you trying to achieve? If you want to use just one excel sheet to validate excel file with multiple sheets, then no, there is not an easy way to achieve what you want. The only solution could be adding a column with sheet name (to the data connector excel file) and the sheet name should be then used for every line belonging to particular sheet. And then there should be some kind of code module/recording, which will click appropriate sheet tab, before validating sheet's content? But I may understand your need wrong, so please explain in more details, what exactly you want to achieve? Ideally, with some excel file examples (both ref. data connector and validated excel file). Thanks.

Hi Pavel,
Thanks for reply
I having the Excel file called abc.xlsx in this i having several sheets like 1.Fields 2.Entry 3.Values 4. comments
i want to validate by calling abc.xlsx without giving sheet names is it posible it will do automatically
if i am giving sheet names separately its working eg: DataEntry(dataentryfile, sheetname) using this one its acheivable
but client reuirement is without calling sheet name want to validate all sheets is there anyway to acheive it

Hi,

No, I don't think that what you want is achievable. Definitely not without coding entire validation procedure. I mean, you will have to write a code, which will "somehow" validate the reference and comparison xlsx. And the code will have to match the appropriate sheets.
