Discussion Board for collaboration related to QlikView App Development.
The .qvw file is the actual QlikView application.
The .shared file is used by the QlikView server to host all collaboration objects and server bookmarks
The .meta file contains metadata such as document category for accesspoint etc.
Can you view the contents of a shared file. We have users who create reports and they share them. Sometimes they complain that they "lose" them. Is this where you would find them?
Yes the .shared file contains all the collaboration object details.
These collaboration objects are the ones that the end end users have created using the Access Point (maybe charts, modifications, server bookmarks, etc.). If this file .shared file is deleted or corrupted, the users may loose all their collaboration object details.
Try use the software Power Tools.
