Data Import Considerations

When importing data rows from an external data source, Silk Central does not account for row sorting functionality used in the external data source. Due to this, the order of data rows in Silk Central might differ from the row order in the external data source. Silk Central also ignores any format settings that have been applied in the external data source. For example, if you formatted date cells in an Excel worksheet to display the date in a certain way, Silk Central will ignore this setting and import any date values in the base format "YYYY.MM.DD HH:MM:SS.M".

Note: Your data source may contain up to 100 rows. If it contains more than 100 rows, you need to enter a query on the Data-driven Properties dialog box that returns 100 rows at most. This inhibits to generate more than 100 tests out of one data source.
