There are ways to recover but you will need to have help from Qlikview. I know there are settings to do various recoveries if you go to HELP --> About Qlikview. Then Right -click on the QlikView Eye - con in the lower left hand corner. There is a setting that you need to change before opening the document.
Folks, many thanks the Easter egg suggestion fixed my problem.
Just a point though, I think there needs to be a proper tool for recovering these documents if the product is going to grow.
Although QlikView is a great product it is an 'all your eggs in one basket' solution. I'm very new to Qlikview, but it seems to me that de-coupling the data from the "code/layout" would be a good thing, unless I'm missing the point of QlikView.
I'd be interested to here any of you seasoned pro's comments
I've been noticing sporadic problems when working with multiple documents at the same time - once a script of one document got replaced by the script from another document, another time the document failed to load while another document was open... These are definitely glitches, but they are very difficult to pin-point.
The only good suggestion (even though obvious) is to always keep good back ups for your important documents and have more than one version to go back to.
I found your related post and hoping you might be able to help me. I'm new to QlikView, working with the free trial. I was so close to having a nice project finished up when QlikView was stuck "saving" after a simple change to the Script file so I used Windows <End Task>. Now the QVW file won't open, I get the message, "This file contains inconsistencies and cannot be opened by Personal Edition". I tried opening "without data" option but get same message.
Is there any way to recover at least the File Script?
