Is it possible to add a dynamic name to on OnDemand NPrinting Report

Hi,

We have just deployed a QlikSense (Feb2021) App that has an OnDemand NPrinting Report within it.  Can someone definitively say if it is possible to add a dynamic name to the report?   Looking around the forums there is some disparity on whether or not this is possible.

For example, say we have a report called This Report.xlsx and would like to add the field Selection of 'Company' to this so the downloaded report is Called 'This Report - The Apple Picking Company.xls' can this be done?

Many thanks,

Dai

Hi,

Dynamic naming is explained in https://help.qlik.com/en-US/nprinting/May2021/Content/NPrinting/ReportsDevelopment/Dynamic-report-na....

You could try to use QlikView or Qlik Sense variables in the dynamic name so you can create one with the getcurrentselection() function but be sure the result will fill the Windows file system file naming rules.

There are other conversations about this topic in the community for example https://community.qlik.com/t5/Qlik-NPrinting-Discussions/Nprinting-Dynamic-Name-with-variable/td-p/1....

I hope this helps.

Best Regards,

Ruggero
