Well you have two choices.
Firstly you need to create a SQL query to fetch the execution details.
once you are done with that, you have two ways to do it. either just take the SQL query dump in an excel sheet loaded with pivot tables and formulas to create the desired charts/tables
or you can use the Post-Processing tab to create a vb function to do the job of creating pivot tables and chart for you, so that when you download the excel everytime, you get the charts/tables right away. For using the Post-Processing, you need to be good at vb scripting.
Hope this wud help.
I would advise you to resort to fetching the dumps from QC using SQL queries, and create the pivot charts and tables in the Excel. I tried VB scripting once, and it appeared more cumbersome to create and maintain it. Then I used QC to derive the most appropriate extract and played with Excel 2007 Pivot tables section and the result was amazing.

under dashboard module, under Excel reports tree structure on the left hand side, create a blank excel report and then on the right hand side window, click on "Configuration" tab. Under that you will see another tab named "Query". And under the Query tab there will be another tab named "Query Builder".
Click on "Query Builder" tab and you will get a new window, for creating an SQL query. In this window, on the right hand side you will be able to see the whole schema of all QC modules.
Create the query first and then click on "Test Query" button in this window to see that you are getting the desired results. And once you are fine with the results, paste the query udner Configuration->Query-> tab and click on "Generate" to get the dump being saved into an external excel sheet.
Hope you will be able to achieve the desired results with the above explanation and i will send you the template.
What you told is I am able to do, but my question is I don't know how to write a sql command ,for the fields I need in my report. Let me explain you my actual requirement. We are recording Diff Sap Modules data in the QC . I have OTC, P2P & Vistex data. I have to generate the report showing how many total scenarios for each module, among that how many passed and how many failed, & how much percentage completed. And total of all these scenarios. Do they need to tell me their data base structure.because I am newly joined.
Module, Total scenarios, passed, failed, to be executed, % completed.
Thanks for your time.
I hope now I explained my problem clearly.
Here you go man.
This is the complete SQL query, which will give you the extract in this format
Test Set Folder Test Set Name Test Script Name in the Test Set Execution Status of the Test Script
CF_ITEM_NAME AS TEST_SET_FOLDER, CY_CYCLE AS TEST_SET, TS_NAME AS TEST_SCRIPT, TC_STATUS AS TEST_SET_EXECUTION_STATUS
TS_TEST_ID = TC_TEST_ID
TC_CYCLE_ID = CY_CYCLE_ID
CY_FOLDER_ID = CF_ITEM_ID
After you take out the extract, just manipulate it in Excel, put pivots, make charts and you will be good to create the report.
I need one more help from your end.
In my QC. we had Master data, business process and interfaces.
Under Master data again I created folders for each module like OTC, P2P, VISTEX. Is this possible to get the data, if I had like this folders. Can I get the data in excel reports.
Thanks for your quick reply..
I have that folder structure in requirements, test plan & test lab.
if I generate the report I am seeing the folders names for reqs, test plan & test lab.In the query builder I executed the SQL code then it is showing 3 times the folder names.
1 for reqs,
1 for test plan,
1 for test lab.
Could you pls help me how to getout of this.
BTW in such a situation, your best bet is to generate a "Graph" and not a "Report" with the "Graph Type" field as progress, if you are generating the Test Lab report and you want it to be arranged in a fashion that it shows you test sets when you have multiple parent and child folders under which you have lined up your test sets
Once you generate a graph, you can go to the Data Grid section of the graph, where you can get your excel downloadable data.
try to play around the above mentioned way and let me know if you get any success, coz even I go the same way and rarely resort to the SQL queries. The reason is that through graphs you can generate your desired excel downloadable data and later in EXCEL, you can combine, manipulate, picot and produce graphs of your own interest.
I come up with an issue.
I was exporting the data from Microsoft excel to QC. But the export wizard is getting struck in the middle and is not responding, I Cannot able to upload the data into QC.Could you please tell me what's wrong. I tried re - installing the Excel Add In also.I have tonnes of scenarios to upload into QC.
