 Hi all,

i use RTC (Change and Configuration Management) for tracking defects. The exporting functionality provided by CCM allows me to export everything else EXCEPT the comments that have been attached to each defect. Is there a way the comments could also be exported to a csv file including all the other information of the defect? (example below)

Type Id Summary Creation Date Created By Owned By Status Severity Assigned To Found In Modified By Resolution Resolution Date Tags Modified Date COMMENTS!!! <-- this is missing and i want this in the csv file for each defect separately.

Is there a solution for this (an easy one plz...).

This is currently not possible using web client.
You have to use RTC eclipse client to include comments in the export:
File->Export->Team->Work Items.

Hope this helps!!

 Hi Rajat,

can't access the Eclipse client... we are all using the web client. Is there any other way?
