generate logfile

Hi everyone, i'm running QlikView Desktop April 2020 SR2 and i want to generate log file of the reload script. If i go in Settings-->General Tab-->"Generate logfile" is disabled and i don't know how to enable it.

I know that, when i reload a file, qlikview automatically generate a log file called like the .qvw name to be reload.

Can anyone help me to set this functionality?

Best regards

HI @frinfo, you can't check the checkbox?

Maybe this document has section access applied and you are accessing it as a 'USER' instead of an 'ADMIN'?

Hi @rubenmarin , thanks 4 quickly reply.

Yes, when i open the .qvw file it ask me user and password, but my user is an ADMIN. How can i disable section access to check if the user is the problem?

You will need to enter Username/password in the app to gain access and then edit the script and comment out the Section Access portion of the reload script and then reload the app.

@Lucas_Gatling  the problem is not the script. If "Generate logfile" is disable is not depends by what  i  wrote in the reload script. 

Maybe some QlikView App configuration?

I was replying to your question of how to disable "Section Access" on the App. The steps I mentioned are how to disable it. Once you disable it I would suggest checking if the 'Generate Logfile' is now available to check.

I can't disable "section access" because i can't edit  script

If the Edit script button is not available more than likely you are attempting to open a distributed copy of the QVW file and not the Source QVW.

Yes, it's correct.

But regardless of this can i enable the log file when i reload script?

You need to open the Source QVW in QV developer and enable 'Generate logfile' then reload the script. That will then generate the document log.
