Qlik Sense Folder Data Connection

Hi all

I have created a folder data connection in the Qlik Sense Hub.  When I create the data connection I can see the target .qvd files (see screenshot 1).  But when I go to 'select data' the connection just hangs and times out (see screenshot 2).

What is causing this?

Re: Qlik Sense Folder Data Connection

are you sure to select the data connection created ?

which version are you using ?

what about file size of QVD selected ?

It looks like you are trying to edit the connection based on the title of your window and not selecting the QVD to open it.

What exactly are you trying to do?

Hi James,

Had the same issue.

Qlik have come back stating that this is an issue with IE and Sense 3.2.3 upwards.

Using Firefox or Chrome allows you to access the files within the connection that has been set up.

Best regards,
