1. Create a new folder in the "<installation>\Testdrive\Htmlgenerator" folder, named Step6.

This is the directory that your HTML report will be created in.

4. Clear the Read Batch Definitions From File check box.

5. Click on the job in the Jobs field, click Delete, and then click Add.
6. Type "STEP6_JOB" in the Job Name field on the Edit Job And Parameter dialog.
7. Click OK on both dialogs.
8. Double-click the Batch Runner item to generate the HTML report.

To view the result:

1. Choose File, Open File from the menu of your web browser.

2. Set a different Layout Style.
