Variable reading value as "(Default) payee3 = com.kms.katalon.core.testdata.reader.SheetPOI@5f780a86"

In WS script, I read the test data from an excel sheet. In certain script i’m facing issues reading BLANK values from excel.
Katalon version == Katalon Studio - 7.2.1

For Example,
When payee2 is blank in the excel sheet,

One script read as below,
payee2 =

One script read as below,
(Default) payee2 = com.kms.katalon.core.testdata.reader.SheetPOI@299266e2

Actual script:

AddBankInfoResp = WS.sendRequest(findTestObject(‘QA_Requests/AddBankInfo’, [(‘acct1’) : acct1, (‘acct’) : acct, (‘bank’) : bank
, (‘bankAcct’) : bankAcct, (‘branch’) : branch, (‘descr’) : descr, (‘payee1’) : payee1, (‘payee2’) : payee2, (‘payee3’) : payee3, (‘payee4’) : payee4
, (‘payee5’) : payee5, (‘payee6’) : payee6,(‘transit’) : transit ,(‘L_BaseUrl’) : GlobalVariable.G_BaseUrl]))

WS.verifyResponseStatusCode(AddBankInfoResp, 201)


Please let me know if any more details are needed to trouble shoot.


You should bind value to variable from test suite level.

Thank you. Test case level binding was working fine in version 6.2… But looks like it is not supported in Version 7.
