Specifying the Sheet that is Used for ActiveData in a Visual Test

When you have defined an Excel spreadsheet as the source for an ActiveData asset, and this ActiveData asset is used for ActiveData testing in a visual test, you can specify the sheet that you want to use during execution directly in the visual test:
  1. Open the visual test.
  2. Select the Repeat using activedata ... step.
  3. Open the Properties pane for the step.
  4. In the Condition area, type the name of the sheet into the Sheet name field. During the execution of the visual test, the sheet specified here overrides the sheet that is specified in the ActiveData asset. If you leave this field empty, the sheet that is specified in the asset is used.
  5. Save the visual test.

During execution of the visual test, Silk Test Workbench throws an error if the specified sheet does not exist within the Excel spreadsheet. In this case, review the Excel spreadsheet and specify an existing sheet.
