i m functional testing windows application
i need to simulate user input into the tested application’s data forms and verify that the tested application processes it correctly. Is there any built in option to obtain data from text and XML files, Excel worksheets and databases like SQL Sever, Oracle and MySQL.
Please read the help topics on Data Driven Testing in the Help file. There is a built in object called DDT that allows you to traverse through records in a variety of data sources and use that data to drive your tests.

For Excel and CSV you can use TestComplete's DDT drivers.
For Database sources, you'll want to use an ODBC driver with ADODB. I'm not sure if there's a built in option for this, but you can probably find what you need by searching for ADODB examples in your scripting language.
