Testers often encounter many windows or Web pages in an application. Each of these windows or Web pages may have many objects within them, and each object could have unique characteristics. (Typical objects are radio buttons, push buttons, drop down lists, edit fields, check boxes, etc.) While designing test cases, one ascertains each and every state of the object in detail in order to cover the functional test cases along with the error handling. This paper simplifies the whole process of preparing test data with the aid of a Microsoft Excel spread sheet. It also covers the basic concepts of BVA and equivalence partitioning techniques.
