Import or Paste in a list of Measurement Names for a Multiple Numeric Limit Test?

Go to solution

I have a multiple numeric limit test that generates several hundred values, and we need to name them in TS.  The only way I know to do this is to literally type them in and arrow down to the next one in the list on the Limits tab.  I would like to be able to paste them in from Excel, or import them somehow.  I used the import/export tool to export the entire sequence step, but the names of the measurements are not specified there.  Other than writing a loop and accessing the TS API to do this, is there a way to do it?

Looks like you have to do it the TS API way.


Import/export property does not seem to export the display name of the Measurement containers which are used as the measurement names.
