Exporting Test Results in QTP

Test Result Window: After running the test, you can view the result in the Test Results window. The Test Results window opens when a run session is completed.

You can open the Test Results window as a standalone application from the Start Menu. To open the Test Results window, select "Start | Programs | QuickTest | Test Results Viewer".

The left pane in the Test Results window contains the run results tree. The right pane in the Test Results window contains the details for a selected step in the run results tree. The details for a selected step may include a test summary, step details, a still image of your application, a movie of  your application, or results of system counters.

If the test run is in Maintenance Run Mode, the result details tab contains a Maintenance Summary. The Maintenance Summary lists the number of objects that were updated and added to your test. It also lists the number of updated and commented steps in your test.

The Object Repository Changes report lists the specific changes that the Maintenance Run Wizard made to the object repository and contains the following sections:

Added Objects: Lists the objects that were added to the object repository by the Maintenance Run Wizard.
Object with Changed Descriptions: Describes the changes to the object properties carried out by the Maintenance Run Wizard.
