Parametrising just one step while using BDD does not work for me

Hello everyone, my issue is: 

Im trying to run tests using BDD and javascript
I got a step 

Then <user> is present in the results:
      | user        |
      | User1     |
      | User2     |



I manage to do this for scenario outline but now I want to achieve this for a single step... what am I doing wrong?

    See Gherkin Syntax in TestComplete, you need to use the keyword Examples.

    For example,

    Scenario Outline: Check discounts
      Given The list of orders is clear
      And I select Edit > New Order from the main menu
      And The New Order form is visible
      When I enter <Count> in the Quantity text box
      Then The Discount label should display the <Percent> value
    
      Examples:
      | Count | Percent |
      | 10    |  7      |
      | 20    |  10     |
      | 30    |  15     |

    The coresponding code works with just 1 value, however when I try to run this step multiple times using the table I am unable to, I feel like Im missing something very simple..
