I found one thing today that I've never seen before and can't understand. Re-writing a script as part of migrating an QV environment to a new server and QDF for a customer. I stumbled upon a script where the ApplyMap (for a certain map) was before the Mapping Load.
Checking the log, yes ApplyMap was some 350 rows before Mapping Load.
Anyone who can give me a hint how this can work, something I haven’t thought of???
No, not that either.
I have a couple of times, when designing the UI, ended up where I have had to throw away an object due it crashed. Throwing it away and re-writing it will do the trick but never with the script, never during my 15y developing QV apps.
My experiences is far less than yours, but I have not heard of something like this before... so I am in the same boat as you are....
Would it be possible to share the snippet of the log file?
BTW ApplyMap before Mapping Load works in all version of QlikView before 12.10. It won't produce any errors and neither will it produce any decent output. Just NULL values.
As Peter mentioned, ApplyMap before mapping Load works in all version of QlikView before 12.10.
I have faced this issue when, I migrate Qlikview 11 to 12. As a quick fix, i moved Maaping load script just before the apply map statement.
Hope this will help you..
