Using NPrinting for existing 'in-built' reports?

I have a document with lots of in-built reports from before we got NPrinting, and was wondering if there's any way to use these existing reports rather than having to re-create them in NPrinting?

In NPrinting you have to select 'Qlikview Entity Report' as your report type.

Then select the objectID, then in serch typr 'RP', it would list out all the reports that you have in your application.

Select the report and you are good to go .

Hi Gilbert,

Not sure what version you are using..but 17.2 has that feature of using the reports in Qlikview document  into nprinting,

https://help.qlik.com/en-US/nprinting/17.2/Content/QlikViewEntityReports/Intro-EntityReports.htm

In My case : I used to get empty reports so took this to qlik they said unfortunately its broken, it gives us empty report as result. they are trying to fix this in future release we may expect this feature up soon.

Thanks-sravan

By existing do you mean PDF in qlik (in report editor)??

If yes, then, Yes you can use them directly in NPrinting without rebuilding them.

Yes the report editor.

That's great, can you tell me how you can do this?
