>> Expected Result: The warning message should describe the problem
what is the message that has to appear?
you can not expect (if you ever have done a development) that if you try to load garbage the system will provide a good messafe

IMHO this king of testing is USELESS, because is focusing in worhtless aspects of the product.

Issue description also is poor because you do not explain that you are using a file that does not has the required format, but you are requesting the developer to open the file to understand this

As I user, not as a developer, the msg that tells me that I try to upload GARBAGE is better than 'OK'
OK what, OK wrong file, OK the system doesn't working?!?
Of course this is only MHO, but is your choice is the platform is going to be User friendly or not.

What you have to do as user/tester is provide clear steps to reproduce
thing that you have not done.
Also you can provide a suggestion of msg to display
In addition I repeat because you are done a work as tester you need to focus in important things not this silly things
