Issue Details

I would like to remove the Begin Sequence and End Sequence lines in the report generated by TestStand. The lines look like the image below. 


The solution to this issue lies in editing the style sheet for the reporting type you are using. This file is located at the following directory: 
C:\Program Files (x86)\National Instruments\TestStand 2016\Components\Models\TestStandModels\StyleSheets

Once here you can open the .xsl file that corresponds to your reporting type in Notepad++ or a similar simple text program to edit it. It is always a good idea to save another copy of this file to make sure you can revert if any of your edits create unwanted behavior. Once editing the file you should be able to find the words Begin Sequence and End Sequence. You should find lines that look similar to this: 

Begin Sequence: <xsl:value-of select="Prop/Prop[@Name='TS']/Prop[@Name='SequenceCall']/Prop[@Name='Sequence']/Value"/>
End Sequence: <xsl:value-of select="Prop/Prop[@Name='TS']/Prop[@Name='SequenceCall']/Prop[@Name='Sequence']/Value"/>

If you comment out these lines where they appear you should see the begin and end sequence lines disappear from your reports.
