After editing a spreadsheet that a Data Driven VSM is using and redeploying the virtual service, we noticed that the changes are not being reflected when sending a request to the VS.

To get it working, we have to reload the spreadsheet in the data driven transaction using DevTest Portal.


Here are some errors noticed in the log files:
