We are running QC 9.2. We have 3 fields that are part of the test Case. When the user runs the test instance in the manual runner and creates a defect from the test execution we want to copy the 3 field values from the test Case to the Defect Fields that are also linked to the same list values. this way the tester does not have to try to remember what the values were.

I have looked at the New Defect, i know the field names but I can seem to figure our how to know for a new defect that does not have a Defect ID, what the linked Test instance and the linked test case would be to copy the right values.

any help will be appreciated.
