If you only need a few test cases, the following steps will work:

  1. Select the test cases you need.
  2. Right-Click on them
  3. Choose "Send by Email ..." and again "Send by Email ..."
  4. In the following dialog, there is an area with check boxes that let you include information.
  5. Mark the "Design Steps" check box, type in your email address and hit "Send".

You will get one email per test case with a pretty list of test details and the design steps. I like to use this for working remote, where I don't have access to the HP ALM.

Caution: Calls to other test are not resolved, you just get the name of the called test.

You can download the Business View Excel Add-in and use the "Test Design Steps" business view from Excel or, if enabled, you can create a Excel Report in the Analisys View.

To download the Business View Excel Add-in go to your ALM server, choose the Tools link, in the new page select "More HP ALM Add-ins", select Add-ins then Add-ins for Microsoft Application then Business Views Microsoft Excel
