How to Use a Variable as a QlikView Server Name

    NPrinting lets you create custom environment variables containing QlikView Server Names that you can use with qvp connections.

    The Default QlikView server option, in the Report settings section, allows you to specify a default QlikView server. The value will be inserted into the variable %DefaultQlikViewServer% and will be used when creating new qvp connections.
