Change the datapool record selection order

The test datapool record selection order determines how a test script accesses records in the test script's associated datapool when you play back the test script.

You can use one of the following types of datapool record selection orders:

Sequential -- Use to make a test script access records in the datapool in the order that they appear in the datapool. The sequential record selection order is the default datapool record selection order.

Random -- Use to make a test script access records in the datapool randomly. A random record selection order accesses every record in the datapool once.
