How to put a bookmark name into a variable?

Hello,

I currently have a QlikView file that has a large number of bookmarks in it. The way the document is now, the bookmark name gets passed into a variable called Bookmark and is displayed in the title of the graph on the sheet. However, when I create a new bookmark the name of that bookmark is not passed into this variable. The document is rather old and we forgot how we originally made this happen. A co-worker and I tried exporting a working bookmark and then renaming it but it didn't work either.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Kimmie

Angad,

Thank you for the reply. However, I don't think that it will help with my issue. Currently we are able to store the selections that are made into a bookmark. The problem is that the bookmark name needs to be stored in a variable when a new bookmark is made. Currently we have a variable that is doing this for the existing bookmarks. When we add a new bookmark to the document, the name doesn't get stored in the variable and we are not sure why. Do you have any insight on this?

Thanks,
Kimmie

Re: How to put a bookmark name into a variable?

If you create an input box with a variable named 'vBookmark', then on the Constraints tab tick 'Include in Bookmarks', then when you create a bookmark if you enter the name of the Bookmark into that input box, you should be able to use =vBookmark within your title and this will always bring up the "name" of the bookmark - not a glamorous or efficient way of doing it but it would give you what you need?

Otherwise I think the only other way I've seen is a macro to export them all and read them all back in as a list, or creating dynamic bookmarks in your load script!
