Does there exist some kind of common teststand database query tool/gui/form or do all testengineers have to develop their own application for retrieving data ?
I'm using standard TS schema, and Access DB.
I'm sure there are 100's of homemade tools out there, but are any of them free to use, or can i purchase something from NI ?
Bigger companies make their own systems i guess, but this should be a common requirement for everybody using TS
Try to use the database viewer included with TestStand. You can include it to your deployments as well. So all operaters can go in and view the database.
From within TestStand you find it in the menu>>Tools>>Database Viewer...This tool is fairly simple and allows you to search on data and filter data in the database.
