New simple tool to write and store requirements now OpenSource

I am happy to announce that since the SAP Inside Track in Romania a new open source tool to handle requirements is open source. It is was an internal tool at CubeServ since 2012, and thanks to CubeServ you can now use it with MIT license.

A simple way to store requirements is as list in a table calculation or in a database. This tool uses Excel and provides some VBA coding that simplify the handling of requirements.

Please go to SimpleRequirementTool to see how you can build an Excel while with the required VBA code yourself. To enhance trust, no Excel with macros will be distributed at any time. Supposed you see one, assume it is an attack and report this please.

The github page will be improved in the next weeks. Please open an issue if you have any problems or to propose improvements. Or fork the project and make a pull request.

To stay informed, you may follow @SimpleReqTool on Twitter.

      Hi Rainer,

      I tried to import the bas file, but haven't finished all the steps.

      Unfortunately, now the context menu seems to already registered and anytime I open excel documents, I saw lots of things on the right-click context menu.

      How do I prevent this macro from running in other excel documents?

      Hi Donnie,

      you can run the macro KontextmenueZuruecksetzen. This will restore the context menu.

      Sorry for the German name, it should be English.

      Feel free to open an issue in the repository regarding the German language or other problems. I will check soon what issues are there and open the missing issues.

      Did you add the code Workbook_BeforeClose as is described in the documentation? If not the context menu will stay as it is. This is annoying and irritating. But to my understanding, this should be all (Am I right?).

      I added now issues regarding this problem and made the first translation of comments and method names to English.

      Please check

      Feel free to open new issues or comment existing one. Processing issues on Github and not here on the comment pages makes it easier for all of us.

      I discuss the topic only to make clear that the issues are processed on github. And because I expect, that SAP developers are not so trained with open Source development using git (and github).
