How to customize the reports generated?
This depends a lot of what we are interested in "reporting on". We have to combine both SQL and VB script to extract data from TD to Excel.
Its also possible to "customize" the standard reports given from the "analyze" tab, this is written in XML if you are familiar with this language. If we log in to Mercury support we will be able to find a lot of code examples. Reply

Can we map the Defects directly to the requirements (not thru the test cases) in the Test Director?
> Create our req. structure.
> Create the test case structure and the test cases.
> Map the testcases to the apr. req.
> Run and report bugs from your test cases in the test lab module.
> The database structure in TD is mapping testcase to defects, only if you have created the bug from the apr. test case. Maybe you can update the mapping by using some code in the bug script module (from the customize project funktion), as fare as I know, its not possible to map defects directly to an req. Reply
