passing parameters between qlik documents

Dear all,

I don't know how to pass a parameter between two qlik documents.

Scenario:

I've a qliview document that call another qlikview document.

In the first one, I can choose the language; I need to pass the selected language code to the second one.

Is there anyone who can help me ?

Thanks in advance

Stefan

Re: passing parameters between qlik documents

You didn't specify how you want to initiate passing parameters -- should it be 1) user action (e.g. pressing button) or 2) one app just should pick up some data generated by the other app while running load script.

For case 1 you can use action trigger External -> Open QlikView Document attached to button or other control. Make sure that you have fields for language in both apps under the same name.

Case 2 is explained above by Pari Pari.

In addition to Dmitry, in case 1, click on "Transfer state", to make the same fields get the same selections.

I struggled with this for hours.  The thing that nobody has mentioned is that the variable must have "Include in Bookmarks" enabled in it's settings.  Hope this helps.
