Importing Attributes using Microsoft Excel
« on: March 11, 2022, 04:02:15 am »
Hi,

I am trying to use an "out-of-the-box" method for creating attributes of elements using Excel and the Microsoft Office Add-In. However, when I try to import either 1) new attributes of an existing element, or 2) update attributes of an existing element, or 3) a new element with attributes, the import fails. In case 3, the import is able to create the parent element but is NOT able to create the parent element's attributes. Currently, my excel file captures the following information:

Name: of Parent Element and Attribute
Notes: of Parent Element and Attribute
Stereotype: of Parent Element and Attribute
ObjectType: of Parent Element and Attribute
Type: for Attribute_Type
ELEMENT NAME: for Attribute's Parent Element Name

Does anyone know why the import is failing to create the parent element's attributes? Can you not create element attributes using Microsoft Excel?

Thanks,
Stevie

Use Belleken's importer - it's free and 100 times better
