String literal expected , but no opening quote error


When Qlikview report loads in IE sometimes when it takes a longer time i see "String literla expected, but no opening quote" alert box. The information in the box is not sufficient to debug the cause of the error.

I have attached the error screen shot.

Has anybody seen this before? How do i debug such errors?

Re: String literal expected , but no opening quote error

Hi ,

I was able to get the cause for this error through debugger in IE. The error occurs beacuse of this tag

<font face="Arial' size=2>.

Now becase the size 2 is not within the quotes this error is seen. But the problem is thi stag is no where in the qlikview files (htm files). I am not sure which code is creating this file and why is it malformed.

I checked online and I found that this error is seen when the xml generated is corrupt.

I can see this error in QVAjax.js file in Qva.PageBinding.prototype.Ready function.

Has anybody faced this before?

Thanks and Regards
