How to ensure that every test script has a test case execution record?

In my situation, I have test cases that include multiple test scripts. So I need a test case execution record for every single test script. How can I ensure that there is a test case execution record for every test script? Unfortunately I can't find an appropriate report.

I met the similar problem, TER is created by testcase, not testscript. so seems one testcase should only have one testscript?  and I am interested with why in your case, 1 testcase includes multiple test scripts?

and we discussed this with our team, and find one way to generate more TER for one testcase, you can refer to the test environment, just create one test environment parameters, mapping it values to different test script... funny!

@zhuang JunQian: one test script verifies if the requirement is fulfilled (positive testing). Other test scripts verify the negative testing: negative means the  test checks to correct processing for mishandling.

Hi Rolf,

your approach encloses multiple test scripts in the same test case while these test different aspects (positive/negative). It appears to be an anti-pattern to me.
