Hi Sergii,
 
Thank you for writing to us.
 
We would appreciate it if you could tell us a little bit more about the kind of testing you expect to implement. Are you talking about testing the webpage where the pivot table is embedded, or is the use case different?
 
Looking forward to your response.
 
Regards,

Hi Mykhailo. Yes, I mean testing the webpage where the pivot table is embedded. The most important measure to be tested is values. So UI issues are not so significant. In my vision, the most straightforward and reliable way is make export to CSV and then parse or compare with some expected values. Nevertheless, maybe you have experience and some suggestions for how it achieve in more correct way. Thanks a lot.

Hi Sergii,
 
Thank you for your reply.
 
When it comes to testing the values displayed in the pivot table, we usually use the getCell() API call to retrieve the value inside the cell and compare it with the expected one.
 
Still, the mentioned approach with exporting and comparing a CSV file is also a viable option, so feel free to use it for your testing.
 
Please let us know if this helps.
 
Regards,
Mykhailo
