Qlikview NPrinting

Hello Guru's    

I have a qvw file called 'ABC.qvw'.

Current situation:

1. ABC.qvw is not published at the moment.

2. There are smaller apps generated from ABC.qvw after 'Loop and reduce' on a particular field (Account Name). The total no. of smaller apps being generated is around 12,000.

My Objective is to create few NPrinting reports in all the smaller (Structure of the reports is same, data being varied by the account being picked in loop and reduce.)

To achieve this I created few NPrinting reports (Connection made through ABC.qvw) on the parent app ABC.qvw and published it separately. Post its successful run I ran the task to publish the smaller apps. Unfortunately the NPrinting reports were not replicated to the smaller apps.


Has someone dealt with a similar scenario? Please let me know if you guys have any solution in mind. I hope I am clear in my requirement.


Thanks

Re: Qlikview NPrinting

NPrinitng reports will not be replicated to smaller apps unless you create for each individual small app dedicated NPrinitng connection, dedicated report and publish task!!!


there is no way to achieve this automaticly!



As an alternative you can use Main ABC.qvw app and use cycle functionality within NPrinting to achieve the same.


example qvw would be helpful though.

Re: Qlikview NPrinting

Re: Qlikview NPrinting

100% agree with Lech.

The correct way to proceed, in this case, is to create a Qlik NPrinting connection to ABC.qvw create the reports you need and then use cycles or filters to obtain user reports. Note that generated reports will contain only the filtered data so you don't have the risk that an user has access to data he is not authorized. From this point of view an NPrinting report is completely different than a not reduced .qvw that contains all data but shows only the one a, for example, Section Access user can see. A report simply contains a picture of the filtered data at the moment of report generation

Working on the reduced apps, in my opinion, is a non sense.

Best Regards,

Ruggero

Re: Qlikview NPrinting

That's not a great news! But I have the correct answer though.

I will explore the cycle/filter functionality and see if it works.

Thanks Guys! Appreciate your support.

Re: Qlikview NPrinting

I suggest you watch all available NPrinitng videos and get some more understanding how NPrinting works. I guess you have taken some assumptions which were not correct..
