Vu Generator Parameters


i am trying to use a file parameter in Vu.

The file is a csv file.

it has two columns:



Now the problem is the second column will contain a multiline value which means a text field that has newline and carriage return characters.

I enclosed my text in "" (double quotes). Still Vu is not able to interpret the carriage return character (\r\n).

it is giving me a file format error.

is there a way to save multilines parameters to be loaded correctly in LoadRunner?


my example input file looks like this:


77880,"this is a text

that contains multiple lines

please call: 1-me

                      2- system admin

                      3- support admin"

i need to have the 'msg' as is formatted on multiple lines.

any ideas?


Thanks in advance

Re: Vu Generator Parameters

You may be able to use this code, modified to suit how you are using the data. Note that this is not dynamic, so you will need to know how many columns you have (although I'm sure it could be made it so).




This is the contents of my parameter file:


This is;Text;write it out;EOL


int i;

char* token;

extern char* strtok(char *token, const char *delimiter);

i = 1;

token = (char *)strtok(lr_eval_string("{pText}"), ";");

while(strcmp(token, "EOL") != 0 )


// copy the sequence index string to a parameter and build the new parameter

lr_save_int(i, "cTmp");

lr_save_string(lr_eval_string(token), lr_eval_string("cLine_{cTmp}"));

token = (char *)strtok(NULL, ";"); // Get the next token

i++; // increment the counter


// Show output with some CRs and TABs

lr_output_message("%s\r\n\t\t%s\r\n\t\t%s", lr_eval_string("{cLine_1}"), lr_eval_string("{cLine_2}"),



Output looks like this:

This is
