In order to perform data-driven testing in QA Wizard Pro, you'll need to create datasheets. Datasheets come in two types: local and external. Local datasheets store the data within QA Wizard, whereas external datasheets connect to data outside of QA Wizard. 

I'll start with a local datasheet. The easiest way to create a local datasheet is to right-click in the workspace pane and choose “Create Datasheet”. You can also choose it in the main menu, under “Data”. Local datasheets are the default option. In this dialog, I'll specify some column names. Then I'll name the datasheet. QA Wizard shows the new local datasheet. It's empty, so I'll have to enter some data for future data-driven testing. 

To create an external datasheet, I'll start the same way. I could choose to import the data, which will make a local datasheet copy of the external data. But to keep the data in sync and up-to-date, you'll usually select “Link to Data”. QA Wizard supports external datasheets using spreadsheets, databases, and text files. I'll choose a spreadsheet that I made earlier. When I created the spreadsheet, the first row contained the column names, so I'll check this box to indicate that to QA Wizard. QA Wizard reads the data from the spreadsheet, and now it is usable from within QA Wizard. 

So now I've created two datasheets that I can use for future data-driven testing.
