hi friends am a new to testing, and i know vbscripting and qtp also and am using them now.My question is how can i decide whether the test is passed/failed in the following situation,

* First the country name is to be created, and the conformation message is printed in the page when it is created
* Otherwise the perticular error message will be printed.

Should i check the list box containing the country name which is created to decide whether the test is passed or should i check the message printed after creating the country name

another problem is they are printing different messages for different context, should i copy the message printed to expected message or any other way.

Thanks in advance
