Is there an easy way to import the datamodel behind a Qlik Sense app into a QlikView 11 app ?

One of the questions in the IT Director scenario is about reusing Qlik Sense apps in QlikView 11. The answer says that you can reuse the model and expressions. Is there an easy way to import these in a QlikView 11 app ?

Hello JF,

Check out this thread

Qlik Sense Desktop - Converting a QlikView Data Model (video)

I haven't done this for the expressions, I'm actually quite curious about that too.

Best regards,

Bogdan

This thread explains how to convert a QlikView 11 into a Qlik Sense model, but not the opposite...

What I'm looking for, is an easy way to reuse what has been created in Qlik Sense into QlikView 11...

Surely the script is all in the data model viewer. Can you not just cut and paste it into QlikView 11?

But this will not work if you have Qlik Sense created QVD files as source..

Sure you can, but if there are 20 different tabs, that means you will have to manually create 20 tabs in QlikView 11, and then repeat the copy-paste operation 20 times, which could be time consuming.

A single export/import operation, or the direct import of the QVF file into QlikView 11 would be much more convenient...

Do you mean QlikView 11 cannot read QVD files generated by Qlik Sense ?

In QV11 there is the Export script option which puts all the script from all tabs into a single text file. I guess this would be a small enhancement to Sense which you could push for. Does anyone know a way to do this "under the bonnet"at the moment it might not be very widely used but could be useful for transferring script between sense apps. I doubt all users will always do everything withdraw and drop only!
