Hi,

I have been asked to set up test automation for XML files however I have never done this. I have two questions.

Does anyone have a link to a code example of one of these harnesses either in C# or VBA code? (I don't have enough experience with Java to go that route)

Can this automation be done using Excel and VBA?

Thanks,
Gwenna

Have you thought of checking the XML structure programatically in VBA, using the Microsoft XML library?

Hmmm.... I haven't....I don't suppose you have some sort of short example of how that would work?

Visual Studio.NET has a unit testing framework.  This slideshow shows the screen shots:

You can write a little code to load a list of files, load files, and validate the XML.  If you have a schema file for the XML, that would make validation better.
