In visual tests, ActiveData typically involves repeating a series of steps, and substituting literal data for ActiveData for each repetition.
In this lesson, we will substitute the literal data that adds a customer to the database with data from the ActiveData file customers.csv, which contains ten customer records. For each repetition, data from a customer record in the ActiveData file will be used to enter data in the fields on the Create a New Account page of the InsuranceCo Web site.
You have now defined how the data file will be used in the repetition logic, and how many repetitions will occur.
Now that you have defined how the ActiveData will be used, you are ready to determine the steps in the visual test that will be repeated.
