    Hi,
        I work with Telerik from Visual Studio 2012. I created a sub-folder under the Data folder and then added a csv file. When I try to bind data, the csv file does not show up in the list. If I try to "Add New", the same data file is being copied onto the Data folder and then it is bound to the test case. But, we want the csv file to be present in a sub-folder. Can anyone throw some light on this? Thanks in advance!

    Thanks,
    Krishna

    Hello Krishna,

    When adding an external data file to your project, a copy of that file is placed in your project's Data folder. This is the ONLY place from where the file is accessed and any changes should be made to the file in this location. 

    Test Studio cannot access the file from somewhere else.

    Thank you for your understanding.
