When you reuse Test Cases , you reuse them with any concrete values they contain, and with any default values that you have entered for their referenced parameters.
Data which has been entered for referenced parameters can be overwritten when you reuse a Test Case .
Reusing Test Cases happens in two ways:
|A grey diamond next to the parameter value field means that the values in it were entered in the original specification of the Test Case .|
|If you enter values here, you can see a yellow diamond next to the parameter value field. This means that the original data have been overwritten. The data source changes to local Test Case|
If you add references here, you will be able to enter or overwrite data when you reuse the parent Test Case .
|Once you change the parameter values of a reused Test Case , any changes to the parameters in the original specification of that Test Case will not affect your new values. You can reset any local changes to the data of the Test Case by removing all Excel files or Central Test Data Sets and then selecting Referenced Test Case from the data source combo box.|
