Decryption in QlikView

In my QlikView report I am getting data from SQL server in encrypted form, is there any way to decrypt in QlikView.

I have googled it but didn't find anything, does QlikView supports encryption - decryption.

Re: Decryption in QlikView

I believe that option is avaliable when you are creating a SQL DB conection using Control Panel/adminstrative tools

Re: Decryption in QlikView

Hi lakhina007,

I have checked the options while creating the DSN, didn't find any to decrypt data coming from query.

Please do share if you have any detailed document on this.

Thanks

Re: Decryption in QlikView

I am not 100% sure I understand what you are asking but I  have a QlikView application that can encrypt and decrypt AES or 3DES encrypted data.

I didn't find a complete solution online but found references to using Crypto JS

CryptoJS v3.1.2
code.google.com/p/crypto-js

Attached is my app with an example how to encrypt and decrypt data.
