Editing expressions in xml files (-prj folder)

Hi All,

I have a Qlikview app with a bunch of expressions that I need to modify each chart. I'm trying to use the prj folder technique to split the Qlik app into xml files and modifying the base xml files. However, the modifications to the expressions are not read into the Qlikview application.

I tested the same with modifications to the Show/Hide grid settings in xml files, they were applied to the application. But changes to expressions are read in. Is this a limitation of the prj folder method? Please help.

Thanks.

Hi,

On further review, I found two locations in the xml files where the expressions are stored,

1. ExpressionDatas 2. Expressions

We need to update the expression in both these sections for it to reflect in the Qlikview app.

Thanks.

I don't think that there is such limitation rather that you didn't change it on the right place. Had you considered to use the expression-overview to make your changes? I think it could be easier because you could filter your expressions - editing and/or search and replace would be quite the same like in the xml and by both you must be very careful not to change the wrong things.
