add data set column
Append new column(s) to a data set.
Name of the data set (see Notes).
Values to which the headers of newly added columns are to be set, in left-to-right order.Tip:Use commas (,) as delimiters between names, when adding multiple columns.
This action may be used within the following project items: test modules and user-defined actions.
Use of this action is supported on the following systems/platforms: Windows, Linux.
- for a dedicated data set: the full TA path from the Data node must be specified, with forward slashes (/) delimiting each level of the hierarchy.
- for an inline data set: only the name (no path) of the data set is necessary.
If the data set is inline, all added data are stored in memory.
If the data set is a module, the data set is first checked out (if not yet in that state), and then modified. During the checkout process, TestArchitect issues a warning/error if either of the following conditions hold:
- the data set is currently checked out by another user; or
- the current user does not have sufficient permission to modify data sets.
Following execution of this action, it is highly recommended that you use a check in data set action to ensure that all changes to the data set are available before it is actually used.
This action supports the <ignore> modifier. If the string
<ignore>is present as the value of any of the arguments, or any argument contains an expression that evaluates to
<ignore>, the action is skipped during execution.
The following settings are applicable to this action: remove double quotes from cells.
The following example adds the four columns CustID, CustLName, CustFName, and Purchases to a dedicated data set Customers.
