FDM - Masking Excel files broken


Article ID: 241796


Updated On:


CA Test Data Manager (Data Finder / Grid Tools)


All of the masked Excel files got with FDM (4.10.9) are broken: 


  1. If you try to open them, you get something like (original in French): "Not possible to open the file "XXX.XLSX" because either its format or extension is not valid. Verify the file is not broken and its extension matches the file format.
  2. Within the OpenXML file, the "[Content_Types].xml" files are empty, for example.


Release : 4.10

Component : Fast Data Masker


This has been resolved in FastDataMasker- If you are experiencing issues masking Excel files, please upgrade your FDM release to or greater.
