# Reading Excel Sheet Data

This feature is available only for vREST NG Pro Edition. You can read the excel sheet data by providing the excel sheet file path in the field Read Excel File available in the Details tab of the test case.

vREST automatically converts the excel sheet data into JSON array. Where each array item corresponds to the individual row. vREST stores this JSON array in a variable named as data which you may feed to your test case via the loop source property as shown in the above image.

Example use case of this functionality is data driven testing. For more information on this, please read our guide on Data Driven Testing.
