    Is it possible for a Test as Step to run Iterations which are data bound via an excel spreadsheet?  My test only seems to run the first line of the spreadsheet then stop.

    Currently I have the following

    1) Create Event Test - Databound to excel spreadsheet and InheritParentData ticked

    2) Add, Edit Delete all event types - Databound to its own excel spreadsheet with 9 lines; 1 for each event type we have

    I have Test 1 inserted into Test 2 as a Test as Step - but whenever I run it Test 2, it only runs line 1 of the data set bound to Test 2 - How do I make it run all lines effectively creating all 9 event types?

    Hope that makes sense,

    Hi Maria,

    Yes this most certainly can be done. You just have to rearrange your test configuration a little bit. Instead of data binding the parent test you must data bind the child test and not use InheritParentDataSource. Now the child test will run all the rows of the data that the child test is bound to instead of using the data from the parent test.

    I hope this helps. Let me know if you need additional assistance.
