Nprinting 17.2 Template editor freeze using level

Hi all,

When I edit an excel Report the preview works fine.

But when I try to edit a level the preview is stuck and also task not sending the report.

Attached example, maybe I'm doing something wrong


Any ideas?

Re: Nprinting 17.2 Template editor freeze using level

I've had this as well the performance of v17.x using levels isn't good compared to the previous version.  I had to increase my hardware spec to get basic levels to work.  try upgrading to 17.3 as it does have sone performance improvements.

At the moment I'm steering clear as much as possible from levels until they sort it out.

Re: Nprinting 17.2 Template editor freeze using level

I have with similar results in performance to levels as it's grouping across rather than down the workbook. also tricker to implement as need to be careful what you use as sheet names in terms if length and symbols used.

Tbh I'd sooner not have to worry about these things but it's where the solution is at the moment so I'm having to scale back on what I can deliver until it improves.

The next service release for NPrinting (17.3.1) contains improvements around levels. Please upgrade when the version becomes available and reply if performance improves or stays the same.

Re: Nprinting 17.2 Template editor freeze using level

I'm using the November 2017 release and I can only get level's to work if the data set is small. Weird thing is if I remove levels on the larger data set it runs fine....

Re: Nprinting 17.2 Template editor freeze using level

I did notice an improvement moving to later releases. Levels will impact the time to generate reports so ive used sparingly in my reporting.

Is your app you are using optimized for nprinting?

I.e Only data and charts required for nprinting included.

What's the size of your app and what's the spec of your server?

Re: Nprinting 17.2 Template editor freeze using level

Hi,

If you create a template with many nested levels or by inserting into levels fields with a lot of different distinct values you could experience performance issues.

This is because each value of a level is a filter. So Qlik NPrinting applies that filter, export the data and go ahead with next value. This requires time.

There are many conversations here about performances and how to increase them. For example Re: Good performance of Nprinting with Qlikview
