Different behavior DataSource in LoadTest

In our project we have to run several loadtests with a datasource. We ran those tests with 5 or more threads.

When a "Grid" datasource is used, soapUI always selects the next row.
So if we put the values 1,2,3,4,5,6,...,20 in the grid and we run with five threads with total runs=20 all of the numbers are used.
When we used excel or textfile as grid, only the first 5 values where used. Every seperate thread keeps using the same value.

We need the behavior of the "Grid" datasource but we want to use another source.

The "loop Datasource" step was no solution because one testcase only ends when all records are read.

Script Wanted
Let's start July with new challenges!

Create a script to change request body before sending it to the server for the TechCorner tag!

Scripts created in June:
- A script to generate a request body based on data from Datasource
- A script to go through all response nodes and check the value of the required field
- A Dispatching script to get responses based on the values in Request Body
- A script to add a new tag and assign it to all TestCases in a TestSuite
