How to handle corrupt objects in QVW or corrupt QVW

It’s always possible that an Application or an Object in an Application is corrupted. We always recommend that you backup different stages of your Application during the developing process.

Should a file be damaged and no backup is available, you can recover it using a prj-folder

Use the following articles for recreating an Application or an Object:


“What is a corrupt Object?”

A corrupt Object
  • can need more calculation time or consume more CPU or RAM
  • lost properties you have set
  • didn’t work as similar objects in the application or a new object with same settings

“How an Object can get corrupt?”
  1. During a Resave in different QlikView Version
    In different stages of new Major Releases, new properties were added and some old was remove. So it could happen that during a resave in higher Version not all properties replaced correct and the Object get corrupt.
  2. During a regular Save

Also, it is possible that it comes to an internal issue by saving the object in a QlikView Application self, this mostly causes no other issues in the application.


“What I do with the identified corrupt Object?”

If you are identify an object like this we recommend to create a new object and only copy the Expressions from the old object, the settings must be done again in face of the old one too.
