Can you verify where the application (.qvw) is stored when you open it directly (and see the data) vs where it is located on the server?
I create a QlikView application. I store this QlikView application on my computer in c:\mydata\.
I now want to use it on the QlikView Server, so I store it in the User Documents folder located on the server in d:\QlikView\UserDocs.
If I want the application on the server to be updated, I then need to set up a reload task in the QlikView Management Console, which will refresh the document for me. Assuming, of course, that the service account has access to all the source data from the QlikView server.
If I have a Publisher license, this looks a little different:
I will store the document in the Publisher Source Document folder. For example d:\QlikView\sourcedocs\
Then I create a task in Publisher to distribute the document to the User Documents folder, which is D:\QlikView\UserDocs.
There are now 2 copies of the document on the server. The one in SourceDocs will CREATE the one in UserDocs. They should generally be the same, since running a task will reload the SourceDocs one and then create the UserDocs one right after.
