Parameter Values Disappearing
I have been using a workflow script to automatically import data values from an Excel spreadsheet into my test script at runtime. I am selecting the data record and MQC is reading the sheet and inputting the matching parameter data fields. While running the test, the values all show.
In the Name 1 textbox field, type in "<<<FirstName>>>".
In the Name 1 textbox field, type in "Bob".
After completion of the test, when I go back into the Test Instance properties to view my run results, I view step by step and this data is now missing. Why wouldn't it save it?
Example: In the Name 1 textbox field, type in "".
However any data value that is numerical remains for some reason. Does anyone have any idea why this is?
Example: Type in Phone Number "523-2323".
Type in "32 Main St".
I understand that perhaps this workflow code could be doing it, but it doesn't make any sense why it would appear at runtime and then disappear after saving the test instance and why only numerical data values remain intact.
Re: Parameter Values Disappearing
To add to this confusion.... If I go back into Test Plan and edit a step manually and retype even just the end brackets >>> it will display the data. This may help people figure out why this is happening. A simple edit into Test plan of one character will allow MQC to know the data field exists after test execution. Bizarre.
