List of Identification Methods
Creating Verification Points in GUI Scripts
4-18
When you select Rows By Key/Value:
Robot uses the Case-Sensitive verification method during playback to verify
values in the columns that contain keys. If you select another verification
method, it applies to the values in the non-key columns.
If you select Numeric Range as the verification method, you must use at least
one key. The key tells Robot how to locate a record. Then, Robot compares the
data to the specified range of numbers.
You can add or change a key in the baseline data file in the Grid Comparator and
then recompare the baseline and actual data files. For information, see the Grid
Comparator Help.
