Hi,

A datapool is a dataset that is used to parameterize your scripts. In short, incase your script is using hard-coded values we could substitute the value with a Datapool value for every iteration.

Datapooling can be used to select different values from a combo-box for instance.

Using
 dp = SQADataPoolOpen(:Path of Datafile:)
Do While Not EOF(1)
  SQADataPoolFetch(dp)

  SQADatapoolValue
SQADataPoolClose(dp)

Playing with the above sytnax should help one out....

Cheers!!
