As you cannot predict the number of steps for each test script, you cannot set rowspan property. You can rather place another Table element within the Cell that prints the steps. You can refer %rpe_home%\templates\RQM\QM_TestcasesWithTestscripts.dta

Where have you used the query in your template? Is the row within the query context?

Instead of using rowspan, you may also try using the test step query within the cell so that all steps are added in the same cell.

 I have used the query for testcase inside text box and for steps and steps I have used in cell level.So what happens for each step gets generated in each cell and respective testcase name also gets generated for each step.(same testcase name for all test step).
