Editing a Runtime Database Record Checklist - WinRunner

You can make changes to a checklist you created for a runtime database record checkpoint. Note that a checklist includes the connection string to the database, the SQL statement or a query, the database fields in the data source, the controls in your application, and the mapping between them. It does not include the success conditions of a runtime database record checkpoint.

When you edit a runtime database record checklist, you can:

  • modify the data source connection string manually or using ODBC
  • modify the SQL statement or choose a different query in Microsoft Query
  • select different database fields to use in the data source (add or remove)
  • match a database field already in the checklist to a different application control
  • match a new database field in the checklist to an application control

To edit an existing runtime database record checklist:

  1. Choose Insert > Edit Runtime Record Checklist.
  2. The Runtime Record Checkpoint wizard opens.

    • If you modified the SQL statement or query in Microsoft Query so that it now references an additional database field in the data source, the checklist will now include a new database field. You must match this database field to an application control. Use the pointing hand to identify the control or text that matches the displayed field name.
