A

There are two ways to load Environment Variable Files in UFT:

1. Load an Environment Variable File from the test settings.

Go to "Files > Settings > Environment > User-Defined".

Check "Load variable and values from external file" option, and click the browse button locate and load the Environment Variable File.

2. Load an Environment Variable File with the Environment.LoadFromFile(file_name) method in the test script code.

Here are some example codes that loads an Environment Variable File:

environment.LoadFromFile("C:\\fyicenter\\UFT\\env.xml")
' Loads an Environment Variable File with absolute file path.

environment.LoadFromFile(".\\env.xml")
' Loads an Environment Variable File with relative file path.

Loading Environment Variable Files with relative file path in test script code is the best option. It makes your test more explicit and easy to be moved around.
