Hi Dmitry,

Thank you for your super site and in particular these movies. You've invested alot of time and hard work and for that I salute you!

I have come across a old CPC legacy question on the web (I can't remeber where from though).

Specification
A travel firm has two workers. User 1 is responsible for all Domestic flight bookings and user 2 is responsible for all International flight bookings.

Requirement
Create a Virtual script that randomly logs on as either user (easy enough to do).

If the random user happens to be User 1 then then select from a list of Domestics cities only. If the random user happens to be User 2 then select from a list of International cities only.

My Solution:

if strcmp"UserID","User1")
{submit blah blah {Domestic}

if strcmp"UserID","User2")
{submit blah blah {International}

It works fine but I am not happy with it as I am sure this type of problem is solvalable via the use of LR parameters? Which I've tried to find with no luck.

Can you or any of those other LR gurus out there help?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Dmitry!

Just went through your parameterization tutorial on Load Runner. It was very helpful.

I was once trying to use table type parameter. It had severla columns and rows. I named one column as USer NAme and the other as Password.Can you please tell me how I can access different columns of choice in script view with same parameter name in same iteration?
