How can I use the exact same data variable in multiple test scripts and only set it once? I would like to set my var to specific data and then use that data in several different test scripts. is this possible? I have tried looking at Public variables but still don’t understand. Please help.

You can use a Function Library to set a Global Variable across multi Actions/Test. When you create a variable outside a function it will become a Global variable. The Global variable is set when the Function library is access and will not go away until QTP/UFT is closed.

You could use an external file to load variables during each test but this would require additional code for each Action.

Another option is to use System Environment variable. This leave a setting around after QTP/UFT is shut down and I do not prefer this options.
