According to the book, @timesheets["first_timesheet"] should be accesible from within my functional test, but its not! Timesheets.yml : first_timesheet: status: 2 start_date: 2006-04-24 cost: 10 employee: 444 id: 10683 charge: 20 My Test : class AdminTimesheetsControllerTest < Test::Unit::TestCase fixtures :timesheets def test_viewTimesheet get :viewTimesheet,:id=>@timesheets["first_timesheet"].id assert_template 'viewTimesheet' end end The error : test_viewTimesheet(AdminTimesheetsControllerTest): NoMethodError: You have a nil object when you didn't expect it! You might have expected an instance of Array. The error occured while evaluating nil. test/functional/admin_timesheets_controller_test.rb::in `test_viewTimeshee t' any ideas why i cant access it? Thanks Andy

What version of rails are you running? I think testing changed in 1.1, which is biting me right now - try using timesheets("first_timesheet") and see if it works. Dan.
