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. See also, How to Use Environment Variables.


Open the Options window

  1. Select the File tab
  2. Click on the Options button

Set the Default QlikView Server name

  1. Select the Report settings icon on the left panel
  2. Enter the name of your QlikView server

This value will be inserted in the variable %DefaultQlikViewServer%


Create a New Connection


Create a new connection, see How do I connect to my QlikView documents?

  1. Checking this checkbox opens the Server name text box to the right so that you can enter the server name
  2. Click on the variable button at the right of qvp:// field
  3. Select the DefaultQlikViewServer variable
  4. Click OK



The screenshot shows the variable %DefaultQlikViewServer% correctly set.

You can see the list of available QVW files by clicking on the three dots.
