Is there any way to attach / encapsulate a data file in a requiremment ?
Thanks in advance

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.

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:
Hope it helps!
Many thanks in advance.

Okay, the screenshot clarifies it. Well, the icon you see in the rich text is hyperlinked. In other words, after importing the ReqIF in a different tool, the icon should be clickable, and clicking on it should open the embedded file.
What is the tool you are importing the ReqIF into? Is the icon clickable in that tool?

Thanks a lot for your reply.
The icon in the rich text window is NOT clickable !
Thanks in advance for your support.

I am still troubleshooting this. In the meantime, you could use Extend instead of the standard editor. As you can see from the above screenshot, when working on an embedded object, the dialog has a “open with default system viewer” link.
I’ll update this thread if I have news on the standard editor.

Thanks for the feedback. I will try!

There is a simple workaround:
Just indicate the encapsulated filename before or after the file icon.
To open the encapsulated file just do a [Search]/[File] with the indicated filename.
