Using * wildcard in table checkpoint



I have a table checkpoint. Values in one of the columns are error values which change slightly every time I run the test (this is expected, for eg: from 0.0027 to 0.0028). I am trying to use wildcard * to ignore the change in values (for eg: 0.002*). This is not working. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Check points of any variety don't "wildcard".  I see two options for you.


1) Remove that column from the comparison in your table checkpoint

2) Write custom code to scan through the table and compare values to specified values and/or ranges.

Why automate?  I do automated testing because there's only so much a human being can do and remain healthy.  Sleep is a requirement.  So, while people sleep, automation that I create does what I've described above in order to make sure that nothing gets past the final defense of the testing group.

Thanks Robert. I need to verify the values in that column, so cannot use option#1. Option#2 will be better in my case.
