Creating a simple webpage with Word - iframe

I have virtually no experience with web pages so just trying to build a simple web page (saving a word document as a webpage - html).

Looking at other posts  - I came up with putting the following in a Word document and then saving as a webpage, then opening this page in a browser but all I get is the code below and it does not show the embedded QlikView object:

<body>

<iframe src='https://dhsqvdevsense1.dhs.ad.deanhealth.com/single?appid=4cb917a7-1f31-49c5-ae51-97064d56e6ad&sheet=JTqPRTb&opt=currsel&select=clearall' style='border:none;'></iframe>

</body>

Re: Creating a simple webpage with Word - iframe

Good Morning. What you're trying to do is usually very simple, so we must be close.

Are you using Windows or Mac?

Can you copy the .htm file locally? For instance, if you're on windows, put it on c:\QlikSense.htm and try it from there? The "localhost" refers to your local machine set up as a web server. You shouldn't need anything like that just to open a .htm file in a web browser.

Also, do you have any other browsers installed? If you can try it in another browser, I imagine this problem is IE based.

Re: Creating a simple webpage with Word - iframe

Do you have <HTML> tags surrounding it?

Like this:

<HTML>

<body>

<iframe src='https://dhsqvdevsense1.dhs.ad.deanhealth.com/single?appid=4cb917a7-1f31-49c5-ae51-97064d56e6ad&sheet=JTqPRTb&opt=currsel&select=clearall' style='border:none;'></iframe>

</body>

</HTML>

Thanks for the reply Meg - still just seeing the code and not the Qlik Sense object.

Any thoughts?

Re: Creating a simple webpage with Word - iframe

When you open the page, it definitely has ".htm" or ".html" as the extension?

If so, are you showing file extensions? It could be "Page.html.txt", but you don't see the .txt. To see that, go to your control panel -> folder options -> view and uncheck "Hide extensions for unknown file types".

Then take off anything except the .htm or .html.

Here is a print screen - still can't get it to work despite recommendations above. Anything look wrong:

Re: Creating a simple webpage with Word - iframe

Can you right+click the .htm file and open it in notepad? Look for any extra lines, especially lines that talk about "text" in the header. Make it so it's literally what we're seeing on your screenshot, save and try it again. MS Word has a tendency to throw a lot of extra code onto a page.

Made some progress.  Now I just get a message that says "make sure you have the right web address: http://localhost:4848".  However I copied the iframe code right out of the dev hub single configurator.
