How to actualize tests in test director if the runs are made onto
User KALTOUM POQUET (KALTOUM.POQUET@orfi.fr.nospam) posted:
I had faced problem with remote execution with testDirector 7.02, so I
copied WR tests on local machine.
Now they are pass, i would like to import it WITH execution status into TD.
1)I tried to save it directly into TD, but TD don't import runs....
2) I tried to copy the test in place of the existing obsolet one, but the
same problem occured.
3) I can't see "import automated test" in menus as I known TD6.02 did. Only
Word and xls import are documented.

Re: How to actualize tests in test director if the runs are made onto
Its been a while since I worked with LoadRunner. Lets see if I got the story straight.
Using LoadRunne a automated script was written. I am going to assume that each TD step was had logic for marking it as "pass". (TestDirector makes this skeletion were each step is a section of code that you can set pass or fail. All steps pass, test is "pass".) You then extracted that test script and executed it stand alone on a PC. Now you want to take the resulting step "pass" and test "pass" back to TD and make it look like it ran from TD to begin with.
In fact I'm not sure how it ran at all. The embedded tl_step I think should have failed. Regardless, the step results are real are hard to import back. I tried once to mark whole tests as passed instead of excuting steps that pass. One of the reports the manager was looking at said we only executed 60%, but we did closer to 96%. We were in hot water until we figured out how he got his numbers. At that time I looked in the the DB structure of TD. (You can to by making a copy to your local machine as Access.)
Some of the structures in the DB are sequental numbers. The sequence numbers are part of the indexing structure. To try and merge two TD databases would be a complicated task. Just slightly worse then trying to merge one set of results.
Suggestion, just mark the test manually.
Now if you want to copy the client WR script back into the TD. There is alwas Cut/Paste.
As I recall the TD database has the filename of the WR script. I don't recall if TD copies WR Scripts into it main path (next to the Database file) like attached documents. Look around the TD database, if you see the old one, just replace it.
Instead of the WinRunner forum try the TestDirector one.
