Tables are an optional scenario mechanism for storing lists of related information that the Scenario Simulator uses for generation and matching logic.

Tip For more about how to use tables in a scenario (with the SELECT attribute on message fields), see the Scenario Simulator User Guide.


To open the Table Editor, select Table Editor from the Tools menu.

The Table Editor displays.



To create a new table, click Table.

The Adding new table…​ dialog box displays.



Enter a Name and (optionally) a Description for the table, and click Create.

The new table displays in the Table Editor.


Note The asterisk ( * ) after the table name indicates that the table has been modified from the values in the currently loaded scenario.


To create a new column for the table, click Column.

The Adding new column…​ dialog box displays.



Enter a Name and (optionally) a Description for the column, and click Create.

The new column displays in the Table Editor.



Enter table data, and click Apply.

The Table Editor automatically adds new rows when you enter data in a table cell, and removes empty rows at the end of the table.


Note The Table Editor does not apply changes to the tables stored in a scenario, until you click Apply.

As well as storing table inline (within a scenario), you can import it into the Scenario Simulator from an external CSV at runtime (see the Scenario Simulator User Guide for instructions). Storing table data inline is not recommended for large data sets; and if a table only has header values (and no inline data), table data must be supplied from an external source at runtime.
