I am evaluating QTP right now and need your help.
In my test case an administrator creates a new user. If there are no problems with validation and database is updated successfully the system displays an appropriate message. I check for this message with a text checkpoint. I would like also to verify that the database has a new record with correct data. My first thought was to highlight 'create user' form input fields values and assign them database checkpoints (to check if these values exist in the db). However QTP sees highlighted inputs/values as input objects and not text. Do you have any suggestions how I can check database for new records from QTP?
