OTA - Download Manual Test Case

QC being one of the widely used tool in Test Management, upload/download test cases into QC is a part of Tester daily routine.

There are multiple ways to create a Test case in QC:
Add manual test cases in Test Plan
Upload Test cases from MS Excel using QTP-Excel Add-in
Upload Test cases from custom file into QC using OTA

Similarly during project migration, archiving test cases is very critical, which can be accomplished in multiple ways:
Using QC project archive tool
Download one test cases at a time by using the Save-As feature
Create a HTML report of all test cases within a folder
Use OTA to write a plug in to download the test cases within folder or set of folder

Below is the sample usage of the last option described above.
The script is written based on QC-API OTA, which exposes the features of QTP and everything done manually on UI of QC can be accomplished through OTA.

A very powerful tool in the hands of Automation tester with an inclination towards simplifying things by getting hands a bit dirty

PS : An article on OTA is due, so look out there for more information on OTA

Thanks for the code. But I am facing few issues,
1.tset.Fullpath is giving empty strings. Is this valid?
2. ext.Load giving error as "CPRojectRepository::DoLoad:The path" must be absolute with either the server or drive specified.

Can you please help me on this..
