    Hi Laurent,

    Yes, there is. In a rich text field, you can add files, which then become part of the requirements set. The Rich Text Editor has a button to add files:

    The new Editor Extend has a sophisticated dialog for managing embedded objects:

    Thanks a lot for your feedback.
    Yes! I can encapsulate a zip file in a rtf file. I can import the rtf and I can see the imported rtf file in the folder. The rtf file appears in the requirement as an icon with zeros & ones. Therefore, importing a data file in a requirement should be perfect.

    But then, how to download / extract / identify a document that is encapsulated in a requirement, except opening the xml in a text editor?

    Thanks in advance / Best regards.

    Laurent,

    You don’t need the RTF wrapper. You can simply add any file to a rich text field. ReqIF Studio will turn it into a hyperlink, and the file will be stored in the Project folder.

    You can then open the file from ReqIF Studio with your System Viewer (e.g. Excel for an embedded spreadsheet).

    Have a look at this screenshot from Extend:

    I hope this helps!

    Thanks for your reply, but I think there is a misunderstanding.
    I’ve clarified the question here with a screen capture:
