The error message Wrong content node response type and other report failures can be caused by invalid applied filters or a cycle that tries to select an invalid value for the field (a value that doesn't exist in the field).

Note: By default, 'verify filter' is enforced programmatically in NPrinting 17 meaning that if a filter produces empty values in a chart, a report will not be produced and the error you will see is Wrong Content Node Type error.



Qlik NPrinting 


Example 1:

Your source contains the Year field that contains the values 2012, 2013 and 2014 but you added a filter with Year = 2015 to the report resulting in an empty data set.


Example 2:

You added to the report the filter Year = 2014 and the Country field into the Levels node. Remember that adding a field in the Levels node is like a filter. When the report is created it is possible that a value of Country has an empty data set for the year selected. For example, there are no sales in Italy in 2014. This generates the error.

One may also get this error if you try to apply a filter to a field that has "Always one selected Value" enabled and your connection is referring to a QlikView server document. This is a documented no-no. Unfortunately, "Always one selected value" fields can be used without any problems in filters when the connection refers to a QlikView file document.

Apparently is has nothing to do with the "Always one selected" per se, as I still get this message after removing all settings. The only thing I suspect is wrong is that the filter refers to a Date Island. That means that all values are always available (eliminating the two cases from the OP), but NPrinting with a server connection apparently doesn't like Date Islands  Let's throw them out

Using NPrinting September 2017 release.
