Unable to Show Data Tables in Excel Data Source

PROBLEM 1

If running a data driven test on remote machine you get your test failed and the following exception could be found in the log:

The 'Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0' provider is not registered on the local machine

This could happen on machines with no Microsoft Office or Data Connectivity Component installed.

PROBLEM 2

I am able to bind an excel file to be used for data driving a test but there are no sheets listed to select from:

No sheets

This could be observed also if the Microsoft Office package is 64-bit version.

SOLUTION

Download and install the Microsoft Access Database Engine 2010. It will install the required drivers for communication between Test Studio and the Microsoft Office files for all of the above cases.
