Re: Video 2 - Using the Variable Editor to Create 'Containers'

Thanks for doing video tutorials.  I read through the documents but had a tough time grasping the workflow.  This is helping a lot.  Can't wait for all of them!

Re: Video 2 - Using the Variable Editor to Create 'Containers'

Not sure if I missed a step...

On the Container Map Editor, I am missing the Base Path Variable column. Should I have and use this column/property?

Hi Tam, no you only need to add physical container name and the prefix (identifier) name. The base path variable was there before to present the container variable name, but that was more confusing than helpful. Best regards /Magnus

Hi Hassan, it's probably the enhanced security settings in later QlikView versions. Please read Security enhancements in QlikView SR13 and QlikView 12
