    Database connections

    1. I need to connect to an XML database for data driven testing. I don't see any documentation that Silk supports this. Anyone ever tried this?

    2. Alternately I would like to retrieve data from an Excel spreadsheet. Anyone ever tried this?

    Re: Database connections

    XML, haven't tried this yet.

    Excel, you can use ODBC to connect and DB 4Test functions to manipulate data just like any database.

    Re: Database connections

    Hi,

    You could also save the Excel spreadsheet in CSV format, open and read the file using the standard File IO operation in 4Test and the GetField function.
