OracleTable Object

Description

An Oracle block of records.

IMPORTANT

When learning an Oracle table, UFT identifies the table columns as being part of a table only if the columns have a description property (usually the column name). If a particular column does not have a description property, then its cells are recognized as separate controls and are learned as separate test objects.

Operations

The sections below list the built-in methods and properties that you can use as operations for the OracleTable object.

Note: You can also view a list and descriptions of the OracleTable description properties, for use in object repository descriptions, programmatic descriptions, checkpoint and output value steps, and as argument values for the GetTOProperty and GetROProperty methods.
