Send QTP documentation to text file

By xerocube | October 6, 2006

To save QTP documentation to a text file, you have to edit your registry. Be careful doing this, cause if you screw up your registry, you may have a bad day.

To open your system registry:

  1. Select Start -> Run…
  2. Type regedit and hit return
  3. To make QTP save the documentation entries of a script:
  4. In the left pane of the registry, select:

    My Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ SOFTWARE\Mercury Interactive\QuickTest Professional\MicTest

  5. Right click on the right pane, select New -> DWORD Value
  6. Name the DWORD SaveSummaryAlways
  7. Double click the new DWORD and change the value data to 1
  8. Restart QTP to activate the change.

Whenever you create a new test and save it, you will find a summary.txt file in the folder for each action. Each time you save the test script, the summary.txt file will be updated.

To generate this file for existing tests, open the test, perform a minor edit (this can be adding and removing a space), and save the test.
