C:Program FilesMicro FocusAddins - Version 12.60

2 - Open the file ''HP.ALM.ExcelAddIn.dll.config'' for editing
3 - Locate and edit the following block of script:




4 - Change the value 'INFO' to 'DEBUG' in the 'level value' field.
Possible values - ALL, DEBUG, INFO, WARN, ERROR, FATAL, OFF

5 - If Excel is running when you edit the config file, restart it to invoke the changes

Note: The logs can be found in the following location:
