We have an ALM report that we save outside of ALM as an attachment. After generating the report in ALM we then save it outside of ALM in a local drive as an html file. Once it is saved outside of ALM it does not show the imbedded images, what are we doing wrong?

The way you are performing this will not work, an HTML file itself DOES NOT contain images. If you wanted to transfer the report and have the images visible outside of ALM you would need to save the report as a a zip file by clicking ''download as zip'' in the analysis view in ALM then move the whole zip file to the local drive, unzip the file then view the report. By nature HTML files do not store their own images in the HTMl code itself but instead they are stored in a folder that the HTML file points to.

The best option to simplify things would be to change the ''output format'' to ''pdf'' for the report in ALM from the Analysis View, this would be easier when moving the file since PDF files have the images saved directly inside of them and don't require extra folders to house the images.
