Can I recover my script from a corrupted QVW???

I have a big problem where my non-backed up document got corrupted. It has a ton of script in it that I need to recover.

Is it possible to somehow recover or export the script without actually opening the document?

Thanks very much

Does "Open without data" work? Plus, always, always, always have a backup copy!

However, there is a secret menu that allows you to set various flags:

Open Qlikview

Click About

Right Click on the QV 'eye'

You then get a hidden list

Scroll down to ScriptRescue

Set this value to 1

Save and close qlikview

Try to open your document

Good luck!
