Question & Answer
How do you import a Microsoft Word document into IBM Rational RequisitePro?
There is an Import Wizard to import a Microsoft Word document in its entirety into a Rational RequisitePro project.
- The document you are importing must be in Word format (see Saving requirements documents as Word documents in RequisitePro help).
- If your document was created in an application other than Word, refer to the Microsoft Word documentation to save the file in Word format.
Note: If the document type you selected contains formatting, you have the option of retaining the formatting of the imported document or overwriting it with the format of the document type outline that you selected.
- Turn off Word's spelling, grammar, and background re-pagination options (in the Word menu's Tools > Options dialog box) before importing a Word document.
- Ensure there are no pending, unaccepted changes in the source document from Word's Document Protect or Track Changes functions. If there are, then they must be cleared prior to importing the document into RequisitePro.
- To unprotect the document, go to Tools > Unprotect Document.
- Turn off Track Changes, go to Tools > Track Changes > Highlight Changes and uncheck Track Changes while editing.
- To accept all changes, go to Tools > Track Changes > Accept or Reject Changes and Accept all Changes.
- Select Requirements and Document if the document came from another RequisitePro project and you want to keep the same requirements.
- Select Requirements only if there are RequisitePro requirements in the document which you want in this RequisitePro project, but you do not want the other text of the document to be imported.
- Select Document only if there are no existing RequisitePro requirements in this document.
- You can enter a description or leave it blank.
- You can select a package to place this into, or RequisitePro will automatically create a package for this document if one isn't selected.
- The filename will automatically fill with the information entered in under Name.
- Choose the directory where the document will be saved by browsing to it.
- Choose a document type and click on OK.
