Its look very wired. There is no data in thq qvw after reload ?

The work around is try to download all the files into Network drive or any folder and then initiate the reload from drive or folder.

Mean time I can test this use case from my share point site and let you know



As far as I know, the http and https protocols do not support file iteration using wildcard loads or FileList() loops. For loading data with ese protocols you will need to explicitly name the files.

Can you access these documents via a network shared drive instead? This is the only workaround I can suggest.
