Moving QlikView documents to new folders on Server

Hi there.

I am trying to move my QlikView documents from the root directory of the Documents folder into subfolders, but am struggling.

Every time I move the files associated with the QVW (.qvw, .qvw.log, .qvw.Meta, qvw.Shared) into the subfolder, I still end up with a .qvw entry in the Documents tab of EMC.

I've tried removing all scheduled reloads and Doc CALs and stopping the qvs service, but I still end up with the .qvw being re-created in the root directory, at least that's how it appears in EMC. The physical .qvw file is in the subfolder.

Anyone been able to do this successfully?

Cheers

Adam

Hi Adam,

If you are using publisher you will need to change the task you have setup to point the distribution to the new folder location.

Is the subfolder under the Root folder?

c:\rootfolder\subfolder

If so then it is working as designed. You will need to have two different locations

c:\rootfolder

c:\newfolder
