If it is on Server, then you can set the same in QMC.

If you want to achieve the same on Desktop, you can run a macro.

Check the below link. It might help.

Qlikview Desktop auto-refresh

Use Windows Task Scheduler to open, reload, and close your QVD Generator.

Hi Trishita

You can use the following steps:

1. Create a batch file to reload your QVW from certain location.

2. Use Windows Task Scheduler to run it on specific time (daily or weekly).

Please refer to the attached batch file for reference.

Please note that if you have a Publisher on your server, you can schedule it on your server.

Regards

Rajiv.
