2. Go to properties> Action>if u want navigate between sheet select>Layout > activate sheet and paste the sheet ID

Hi Avinash ,

Thanks for the response I have tried that approach ( external --> QVW)

But I want external QVW to open under a set of buttons --

Bottomline : Set of buttons will be common and appearing - only the views must change upon Selections

Kindly help

I did not get ur requirement can you please provide the snapshot what your trying to achieve.

Hi avinash ,

I have two buttons and have two QVW configured for them , if I clik retail - retail relevant QVW should appear in the charts place & if I click non retail , other QVW should appear in the bottom

can we do that navigation.jpg


Hi Sai,

This is not possible, but you can try like this in both document follow the same format and in the action select open the document in the  same window this will provide the same effect.

And one more thing if  you want only few charts then no need to navigate to other document. Create charts for it and based on button selection conditionally hide it and re appear it !!!

Hope this helps you.

Follow steps below:

  • create a button. (Say Monthly Income Statement -2011)
  • go to actions --> select Open Qlikview Document ---> write the name of the qvw application which you want to open inside 'Document'
  • now when you click this button , this will take you to the application (Monthly Income Statement -2011).
  • same you can do with 'Monthly Income Statement -2011' in order to  redirect to original application.
