What do the test case and test suite icons mean in RQM version 4.0?

Since moving to RQM 4, I see some new icons for items such as test cases and test suites when I look at the test suite execution records. For example:

What do these icons mean? I can't seem to reconcile the picture with the latest state of test execution record. For example, the test case execution record says pass, but the test case picture implies there is a failure.

I found out that the mismatch between latest state and the icon was because the test suites with a red X included a test suite execution record which was not assigned to an iteration, and this test suite execution record had failed in its last run (albeit several months ago).

If you look in the online help topic Testing -> Tracking the Test Effort > Tracking test execution status,  there will be some information on all of the icons you mentioned.
I have added a screen shot as well

Thanks for the pointer to the online documentation. That is exactly what I wanted.

I found the help topic you mention in the online help on the site.

In my defence at not finding it myself, my server is only on and this topic doesn't appear in the online help for that version. ;-)

Thanks, Colin.

No worries :-)
By coincidence, someone asked me the same question not too long ago, so I had 
topic bookmarked.
Glad it was helpful and thanks for the feedback
