Config file - xml or excel?

Hi Friends,
In RE-Framework - the config file is in excel but sometimes in banking domain preferred xml for config file.
so which file should be used as a config file and which is best from security perspective.


Hi @Rup_1

There is no such hard and fast rule to use only excel as Config file, you can use XML as well… but when you change the type of file you need to make changes in InitAllSettings.xaml file under Framework folder according to your need.

For more information on how to convert XML to DataTable, please refer to

Thank you… Happy Coding!!!

As @Sudheer_KVR said there is no restriction to use only excel as Config file, You are free to use XML / JSON too, you need to do changes according to that

Hope this may helps you
