Reload failing before any code has been executed


Has anyone ever came across a problem that is similiar to mine?

In one of my documents-it was working upto 2 days ago- will come up with the error message saying that execution has failed and to reload old data before any data has even been loaded.

I even put exit script before the variable declarations and it will still fail the reload and ask if I want to reload old data.

Any help is much appreciated as I am completely baffled as to why this is happening.

You can try to generate a log file to check what is going on...

You can enable it at document properties -> General Tab -> Generate log file (on the right).

Then, during reload a file with the same name of your qvw will be generate with the extension .log at the same folder as your .qvw.


I had a problem like this before when the application became read-only or when I did not have the rights to write on the folder.

QlikView tried to save the application before reload and it crashed, or it tried to create a log file and failed, or tried to overwrite the log file... Maybe thats your problem...

Hope this helps,

Hi Erich,

Thanks for the reply.

My code log looks like this:

17/06/2011 11:56:55:      Execution started.

17/06/2011 11:56:55:      QlikView Version:10.00.8935.7

17/06/2011 11:56:55: 0003  exit script

17/06/2011 11:56:55:      Execution finished

You said you had this problem before, did you ever solve it?

In my case, it was only folder and file permissions, or a process locking the files preventing QV to overwrite it.

Try to make a copy of your qvw and reload it... (maybe the whole folder)
