Applies to TestComplete 14.70, last modified on October 26, 2020
The manual testing functionality is deprecated. Do not use it for creating new tests. It will be removed in a future TestComplete release.

You can export the contents of a manual test to a DOC or HTML file showing the step-by-step actions to be executed. You can then pass this file to your colleague or manager for review.

Exporting the manual test data to the HTML format

Perform the following steps:

  1. In the Project Explorer, right-click the desired ManualTesting item which is found under the ManualTests category and select Edit from the context menu. TestComplete will open the Manual Test Editor in the Workspace panel.

  2. In the editor, right-click the step list and choose Export to HTML from the context menu. TestComplete will show the standard Save File dialog.

  3. In the dialog, specify the name and location of the file and click the OK button.

Note: TestComplete will store all images included in the step descriptions to a folder and name this folder <FileName> Files. This folder will be located in the same folder as the HTML file.

Exporting the manual test data to Microsoft Word

When exporting to Microsoft Word, it is possible to use the built-in template or to assign a custom template for the generated file. The name of the template file and other customizable export settings are specified in the Export to MS Word group of the Manual Test editor's Properties page.

Tip: Instead of configuring the above-mentioned settings in each project, you can set up default project properties in the Manual Test | Export To MS Word group of the Default Project Properties dialog. In this case, a new TestComplete project you will create will have these properties set by default.

Perform the following steps:

  1. In the Project Explorer, right-click the desired ManualTesting item which is found under the ManualTests category and select Edit from the context menu. TestComplete will open the Manual Test Editor in the Workspace panel.

  2. In the editor, right-click the step list and choose Export to Microsoft Word from the context menu.

  3. Depending on whether a custom template file was specified and found, several variants are possible:

    • If the template file name was not specified, the export is made using a built-in template.

    • If the template file name was specified and found, then the document is created using the specified template.

    • If the template file name was specified, but not found, you are prompted to use a built-in template or to cancel the export.

    When the exported file is generated, Microsoft Word is invoked and the manual test data is pasted into a new document.

  4. In Microsoft Word select File | Save As, specify the file location in the Save File dialog and press the Save button.
