 I've test script data as <p>This is a dummy test script step</p> in excel in cfg file. I tried Div, HTML, Pre, DivHTML, RichText etc.. but doesn't seems to be working.

testscript.steps.description=Div(P) ,    or HTML(P),  or  Pre(P), or   DivHTML(P) or RichText(P)
testscript.steps.expectedResult=Div(Q) ,    or HTML(Q),  or  Pre(Q), or   DivHTML(Q) or RichText(Q)

After exporting literal text got updated.  <p>This is a dummy test script step</p> 

Can you please help me here, how to make it work.

RQM Excel Importer supports HTML, RichText, Pre and Div keyword as described on RQM Word Excel Wiki. But scope of formatting is limited by Excel-cell's format support capability. I suggest to refer 'Samples' folder for example cfg file related to this keyword.

Hi Mehul,

When we've eg. following text in J column. 
<p>&nbsp;This is dummy text line.</p>

And following in Cfg file

Then 'Precondition' properly get formatted but with same J column for test script step description doesn't gets formatted using any of the keywords( RichText(J).... etc..)
Cfg fille.

How can we format testscript.steps.description, testscript.steps.expectedResult? 
Can you please help.

As described at RQM Word Excel Wiki, configuration file syntax HTML() will enable you to decorate excel data with HTML markup but it will not parse the HTML tags present in excel cell data. You can use it like 
    testscript.steps.description=HTML("<p>" & J & "</p>")
