EXE to create a blank Qlikview Document

I have created an extraction file, before I extract any data from the source I am using the Execute cmd to create a Folder Structure.

Does anyone have the command line to add a blank qvw file to one of these folders?

Thanks

Alan

Create a document like that somewhere central once manually, then copy that empty document in the same batch file where you create the folder structure (or use another execute cmd for the copying).

Re: EXE to create a blank Qlikview Document

Excellent that worked, but I had to remove " before copy


EXECUTE cmd.exe /C copy "E:\HQ\empty.qvw" "D:\QVData\somewhere\new.qvw"


thanks again
