NPrinting does not export values into Excel file from Qlik Sense Pivot Table

Hello,

I am having a problem with an Excel report I want to make. This consists of a Pivot Table that should be exported from Qlik Sense Server (version 3.2 SR5) using NPrinting (version 17.5). The template format is .XLSX.
The table is transferred as data (I need every value afterwards).


The Pivot Table consists of 2 rows (Country and City), 3 columns (Client, KPI, Time Period) and the Values (Values being the measure and the rest dimensions). In Qlik Sense, the Values field has the formula:


pick(match(KPI,'KPI1','KPI2','KPI3', 'KPI4', 'KPI5'),

num(IF(sum(No)=0,0,sum(No)),'###,###'),

num(IF(sum(No)=0,0,sum(No)),'###,###'),

num(IF(SUM(No)=0,0,sum(No)/SUM(NoTotal)) ,'####.#%'),

num(IF(SUM(No)=0,0,sum(No)/SUM(NoTotal)) ,'####.#%'),

num(IF(SUM(No)=0,0,sum(No)/SUM(NoTotal)) ,'####.#%'),

)

There could be a problem if I have 2 different data format types in the same Pivot Table?
This appears  with/without a filter for year 2017, month January. When I use the filter for month January 2017 the returned results are for the year 2017 and when I select only 2017 there isn't nothing relevant returned.

Thank you!

Re: NPrinting does not export values into Excel file from Qlik Sense Pivot Table

Hi Victor,

Well, i do not fully understand the problem.

First of all Pivot Table will not be transfered as data from Qlik Sense to NPrinting. You can export data as a straight table and then use excel based functionality to pivot it.

The second part of your question is confusing (regarding selections on Year & Month). My question is - Does it work in Qlik Sense? Do you get right results in Qlik Sense? If yes - then we can only focus on NPrinting bit which may be little bit tricky, but still achievable..

Could you please screenshot what you have in Qlik Sense, then provide a drawing or mockup of what you are trying to achieve in NPrinting and we will take it from there?

cheers

Re: NPrinting does not export values into Excel file from Qlik Sense Pivot Table

Ok, I was referring that I want to transfer the object as a Table not as an Image.

I have the straight table in Qlik Sense (made after the Pivot Table), imported it and I have 2 sheets in the NPrinting report: Source (straight table) and Pivot Table.

Yes, it works in Qlik Sense and the results are correct.    

This would be the Pivot Table in Qlik Sense (I removed the values):

Qlik Sense Pivot Table QC 2.jpg

     This is the Excel expected output:

Re: NPrinting does not export values into Excel file from Qlik Sense Pivot Table

Hi Victor

is there any particular reason why are you using for this Exercise Pick(Match...) expression for KPI Measures instead of 5 separate Measures?

I am trying to build working example for you and this is the first obstacle i came by.

regards

Lech

Re: NPrinting does not export values into Excel file from Qlik Sense Pivot Table

Hello,

I am not sure how does it work using 5 KPI Measures. I was also thinking about importing a template from an Excel file into NPrinting and populating it, but I don't know how I can do the populating part.

I also encountered this issue when verifying the connection to the Qlik Sense app. Maybe this helps in some way:

Also, I encounter this sometimes:

Thanks a lot,

The Windows user who runs the Qlik NPrinting Engine Windows service must be a domain user. There are other requirements to connect to Sense, I would to suggest you to check the page https://help.qlik.com/en-US/nprinting/September2017/Content/DeployingQVNprinting/Installing-qlikview...

The results of the Run verification must be all green before proceed.

Best Regards,
