Opening example file in Qlikview personal edition

Hi, i'am new to QlikView, and so i'm browsing the Forum to learn about the program. Sometimes i find answers with useful qlik file example but when i open them in Qlik View personal edition it says the file is from another personal edition and give me only 4 try to reset and open the file. These is a way to avoid this, so i can learn from other's developers example?

Many Thanks

Achille

Re: Opening example file in Qlikview personal edition

Hi,


Using Personal edition you cannot open a document saved by a licensed QlikView client,

If you have Qlikview Server you can lease license from that.  This is the limitation of personal edition Qlikview Desktop.


Personal Edition FAQs


Source from manual:

  • "With QV personal edition you cannot use your QlikView documents on different computers,

you cannot share your QlikView documents with another unregistered user, or open a Qlik-

View document from another user (exempted are documents specially prepared for personal use by

QlikTech). However, documents created in QlikView Personal Edition can be used with a licensed

copy of QlikView desktop and they can also be published on a QlikView Server."


Hope this helps you


Regards,

Deva

Re: Opening example file in Qlikview personal edition

because tht is the limitation of personal edition,means u can not open others created files more than around 7 times.

Hi Guys and gals

Not to worry to respond to my message, I have managed to find an alternative, "Power BI" from Microsoft, and it seems to be as good as Qlik Sense and the BIG + is that it does not have this ridiculous limitation on downloading and accessing learning examples.

Thanks

Bye
