Qlik session stuck at "initialization of adding data"

Sans titre.png

Good morning everyone,

I don't know why but my Qlik gets stuck at "initialization of adding data" when I create a new application and I want to add new data (through a file). I've tried uninstalling and installing it again, as well as rebooting the computer.. Still not working.

Thanks for your help !

Hi Mehdi,

Look, may be paths  of file app QVF  or loadable file contain symbols not Latin alphabet. If so, try to use only the Latin alphabet in path of files.

Regards,

Andrey

Re: Qlik session stuck at "initialization of adding data"

I am experiencing the same with one (only) of my apps.  I loaded new data in the excel, launched the app, the app will open, but the "Add Data" gets stuck in the "Analyzing add data" phase and does not move on to the next stage which is showing me the existing connection to my data for this particular app.  All other apps can update, just not this one.  Not sure why, but I need to update it!

I'm using Qlik Sense Desktop v3.1 SR2.

Appreciate if anyone can help.

Cheers,

Olivier

Re: Qlik session stuck at "initialization of adding data"

what it the volume of data in the file ?

do you have geo location data in it ?

Re: Qlik session stuck at "initialization of adding data"

Good catch, that may be it.  I have a field called "Country" in some of the tables.  it should not be the size as I have not yet added anything, just can't get to the add data portion.  But I did notice looking around in the Data Module Viewer that the field called "Country" in my tables has some
.geofield..." in it.  This is strange as it wasn't a problem until two days ago! Since it won't let me into the data tables, I can't edit it.  Any other ways?

Hi Oliver,

One crude way I use to work-around instances like this (where Qlik Sense for some reason takes too long to go past the Data Load stage) is to load that using my trusted Qlikview . I then just copy-paste the script, make changes to the fields and the data-connection and then just load and get on with it.

Hope this helps.

Re: Qlik session stuck at "initialization of adding data"

Hi Mehdi,

Do you think it could be related to the Qliksense version you are using?

I'd try installing a slightly older version and then trying to load data. If it works in the older version and not in the new one, then you could raise a ticket with Qlik.

Re: Qlik session stuck at "initialization of adding data"

Hi Karthik,

Thanks for both ideas. I do not have QlikView and am not familiar with it. I also do not think it is a Qlik Sense version issue as all my other apps open fine. Something went wrong with this one. I can still use the app, just not add any new data to it.

Re: Qlik session stuck at "initialization of adding data"

Hi Karthikeyan,

Your instincts were correct, the GEO data was what was blocking the data loader.  I had a few fields with the word "Country" in it and somehow, after multiple days using the app, Qlik tagged them as GEO tags and this seems to be what was causing the memory loss during the initialization of the data loading phase.  I edited the tables by switching the GEO to General and it allowed me to continue loading data.

Thank you.  This worked for me.  Not sure about other cases in this thread.

Hi Karthik,

Problem is now solved, it was indeed a version problem. Thank you guys for your help.
