Unable to open QVW because of large data - solution
I came across this issue recently where I was unable to open my QlikView app as the data it contained was too large. I thought I would share the solution:
Why Occurs particularly with Apps which accumulate data over time.
You will get the message “The document C:\<foldername>\<file name>.qvw failed to load”.
Resolution Two options:
1) 1) If this file remains in the Recently Opened Documents view you can right click on the file and select the option Open '<filename>’ Without Data.
2) 2) If the file is not on Recently Opened Documents you will have to go to the Start button and type on the command line C:\Program Files\QlikView\qv.exe /nodata C:\<foldername>\<filename>.qvw.
This need to be typed all in one line so you might need to type it into notepad and copy/paste into command line.
You can then reload a smaller subset of the data in Debug mode if you need charts/tables/variable etc populated for viewing. Ultimately, you will need an alternative long term solution to retain all the data.
