Button with only Export Action

Hi,

i'm trying to use a button with the Action Export, but it's disabled (does not work) when it's the only action in the button. But i only want Qlikview to export the selected data to a delimited or csv text file, no other action.

Any alternative?

I recall having this issue too...  Not fixed yet?

My workaround was to add some harmless action, probably clear a field that's never selected, or something like that.

Hi

     Please confirm whether your macro sub function name (ie Sub ExportMacro()) and the your export button Run macro name both are same.

Looks like the question is about the Action Export, not an action that runs macro for export.

(At least this was my case.)

Mr Solomovich is right. It's about the Action Export.

Of course, design a macro and assign the button to run the macro is a workaround, but i'm the oppinion macros should be used in exceptional situations, when there is no predefined action, or in very particular cases.

Hi,

Export action should work even when used as only action, or atleast it is working for me.

I checked for both the 11 IR and 10 SR3.

I would suggest that you please check if you are setting up it properly.

May be you can try by checking 1st to set export to clipboard then you will get to know, if values are being pushed by Qlikview.

let me know, if I can be of help.

...

Thanks

I added a button and set the Export action to it. Works fine with my version of Qlikview (10.00.9731.9 SR6 64Bit Edition).

Could you post a screenshot of your settings for the Export?

Hi James,

I just want make a button which has drop-down list to choose different format to export.

Please refer to word document to get some detail.

Helen, that's a different question than simply adding an Export button. You'd probably need to make a separate list box then pass the result of that to a Macro, rather than a button action.

Thanks James,

But could you please send me your script about the export action.
