Test Script while doing manual testing

Can anyone help me with an example.
Uptill now I as just aware of test script generated by using automated testing tool.

Re: Test Script while doing manual testing
Test script generated by automation tool is entirely different from the one used in manual testing.In manual testing,test script is one of the most important documents.A Test script contains test cases which are made to test same/similar functionality of the software.So a test script is nothing but a group of test cases made for testing a functionality.For example if your software is having n number of different functionalities then it is possible to have n test scripts ,each for one functionality.Though depending upon the complexity of the functionality, a functionality may be divided into subfunctionalities and each such subfunctionality may have a separate test script.At the time of manual testing these scripts are run/executed and bugs are filed.There are different formats for writing test scripts but mostly test scripts include Title, steps to recreate,expected result,actual result,pass/fail criteria.There may be more field/columns in the test script depending upon your requirement.Use case document is a very high level document.With the help of use case document,different scenarios can be listed and from these scenarios you can write test scripts.
