When you publish Microsoft Office Word format manual test results that Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Team Edition System Test generates to a Microsoft Team Foundation Server 2005 server, you receive the following error message:
Publish Operation Failed
To publish test results that Visual Studio 2008 Team Edition System Test generates to a Team Foundation Server 2005 server, the XSL Transformation (XSLT) is used to convert the test results to a Team Foundation Server 2005 version. During the transformation process, the Word document causes an XML exception when a node element expects a value that does not exist in the manual test.
