I had executed the same code but after import statement is placed in the beginning, the test does not calculate actual values and it loops through the 1st iteration though test settings is set to run through all rows...and also, though the cursor is moving in the data table sheet...could not exactly locate where the problem lies in...Can you pls help?

Great work.I am learning QTP and find your videos of big help.Keep up the good work!

I executed the same code. Everything is ok but the last step of IMPORT excel file only made iterations in the first row for 9 times. ActualResult was wrote into the first row 9 times with the same result 12.

If I don't use import statement, the program runs correctly.

What is the problem?

Hello Dmitry, I have been following your blog since a long time and found it as a very useful source for learning QTP and LoadRunner. Thank you very much for the extraordinary videos and texts in the blog.
Could you also add some information about Data Driven Framework in QTP which is most widely used. How to design it and execute the scripts using this framework. I feel that understanding any one framework thoroughly is very important for any automation test engineer.
