nPrinting Newbie - Help on Understanding Textbox value

Hi All,

One of the systems I took over has several nPrinting reports running accross them which is fine.

I believe one of the results being pulled through is being incorrectly calculated and the problem is I can't find it anywhere!!

I need to find where <FTF%> is being called from but there is no refference in the Qlikview project of any fields titled FTF.

I've never created a report on nPrinting so not sure how it works yet.

Any assistance would be great.

Thanks

Hi,

<FTF%> is a tag inside a report template. It could be a QlikView field, but also a QlikView Variable, or an NPrinting formula, etc.

The problem is that the entity <FTF%> is used in the template but it is not available in the source QlikView document, so Qlik NPrinting is not able to replace it with the value/s during the report generation.


You have to refresh the connection cache, open the template with the Designer and correct the issue. If you have never create an NPrinting template before I strongly suggest you to ask the help of the person who created the reports you are using.

Best Regards,

Ruggero

Hi Ruggero, I will have a look at your suggestions first!

The person who created the templates left the company a couple months ago and this is the first related issue to nPrinting reports we've come accross.

Thanks

Out of curiosity - do you know what FTF% is?

Maybe instead of finding it source and trace back from end to beginning, try to do oposit (go from beginning to the end) by understanding what number it needs to produce and creating it by yourself.

Going forward it would be cleaner solution and i am sure you would be more comfortable with it.

Lech

Hi Craig,

If you can't find a QlikView document field or variable with that name it could be a formula in the NPrinting report. Example:

HTH - Daniel.
