I’m looking at comparing text in a WebUI with text in Microsoft Word document.
ie, text in the WebUI (on a web tile for example) should match the text in the Design doc.
Can Katalon Studio fetch a Word doc (maybe from github or within ‘Katalon Studio\Data Files’) and compare a portion of text with what’s displayed in the WebUI?.
Are you skilled enough to invent a solution for yourself in Groovy programming language? If yes, you can try developing it using Apache POI API which is bundled in Katalon Studio; though I do not recommend it to you.
If not, you should abandon the idea of using a Word (docx) file as data source. You should somehow convert the docx file into an Excel file (.xlsx) and reformat it so that the data is in a simple grid format.
… the text in the Design doc.
You can reorganise your design doc so that it consists of a text body in Word (docx) + appendices in table format in Excel (xlsx) sheets, can’t you? Or, you can embed an Excel sheet into a Word document, like this:
Once you moved your text fixture in Excel out of Word, then Katalon will happily fetch the data through its Data-driven testing feature.
