The use case should cover all alternate paths or scenarios. Have the business user come up with alternate paths, until they can't come up with any more. Have them explain the expected result for each alternate path. When you can't come up with any more, you're done. If you have too many, use object oriented principles such as inheritance, and abstraction to break the uber use case into more manageable abstract ones.

Exactly! It is much easier for customers to verify a narriative, scenario-based use case, than an Excel sheet of functional requirements. The latter has proven difficult for non-technologists to understand, and put into a business context.

Agreed.. Use Case should be used to document requirements, validate with the Customer a common and correct understanding, use them to actually code/build the application and then use them to test the application as verification criteria..
