    Data pool file management question

    User (thinkleqa@yahoo.com) posted:

    Currently we are creating .CSV files for our data pools. We are
    calculating the number of items in each that we need for any given
    length test. Then we have to create sub-files for the different test
    from the master data pool files.
    This is time taking, sometimes a waste of data and error prone.

    I really would like to find a solution to this problem. I have heard
    it mentioned that another customer was able to use a database table.
    This sounds like he had to go to extreme measures to accomplish
    something that should not be so difficult.

    I was hoping that someone out there would know of a way that the data
    used during a test could be removed either during the test or at the
    end of the test automatically by Silk.

    I would think that there should be a tool or function that would
    track the data used and then give you an option to keep or remove
    it.

    Perhaps one of you developers or QA/tester out there might have a
    solution.

    Thanks again for your time,

    Trevor

    Re: Data pool file management question

    The short anwser is no.

    The long one:

    We clean the data at the end of the each test using silk scritps. We also keep a base DB, that we can use as a clean copy(this can be time consuming, unless you can plug fresh db to your app without causing problems then you can just have a clean copy of db and remove the used one).

    Observe what kind of data you create during test, files, and in app data. When you see a pattern, group the information in a list, and use a user-defined function to loop through your list and remove the garbage.
