In working on a Qlik Sense Table Object I managed to make Qlik Sense spiral into an error that may be unrecoverable. The sheet is rendered unworkable and any objects on it cannot be recovered.
I was creating a table that was intended to be dimensionless. Creating such a table is actually pretty cumbersome. I tried to create a variation that summed all of the data into a dimension field. However, this appeared to cause Qlik Sense to spiral into some kind of infinite loop. It spins 'forever' with a 'Cancel' button in the middle of the table.
Clicking the 'Cancel' button seemed a good way to escape. Unfortunately, clicking the 'Cancel' button caused a popup that said 'Data update was cancelled' with the only option a button labeled 'Retry'. Clicking the 'Retry' button brings Qlik Sense back to the spinner with the 'Cancel' button, and the cycle simply repeats.
Closing the 'sheet' window and re-opening it results in a repeat of the infinite load. The same is true of closing the app or Qlik Sense altogether and re-opening it. All objects within the sheet cannot be edited. The entire app is rendered unworkable.
The sheet becomes a minefield. Opening it instantly locks up Qlik Sense. Is there a way to interrupt the attempted load and recover? Ver 2.2.4 Build:60.release/ms15.
