My qvw is showing failed to open document.it is showing me this error from the time i was trying to save the file.I am working on qlikview 11.how do i recover this file.Is there any way out to recover it.The size of the file is 380MB after failure it shows 4MB only.
I know this is an old post, but I have found another solution in QV 11 SR2. If you right click on the name of the file from within QV, there is an option to "load without data." I have been able to recover a document by doing this and then reloading the data from within QV.
Yay for this "easter egg" that reminds me of video-game cheats when playing "Super Nintendo"
In my case, the users getting the error message simply did not have File access (so it was a filesystem problem, not Qlikview). I gave them Read access via Windows Properties > Security, etc, and it worked.
