Free Open Source QlikView Report Generator

Recently had a project approved on branch.qlik.com. My team and I have developed a free and open source alternative to NPrinting for QlikView or reporting utility built into QlikView. The program can be downloaded and used immediately with the setup utility, or customized by downloading the program files and editing in Microsoft Visual Studio.

Here is the project URL: Qlik Branch

The user of this program can include "tags" in a Word document where they want QlikView charts to be pasted. Our program will scan the Word document for these tags and paste the corresponding charts without interfering with the rest of the content in the Word document. The documentation on Qlik Branch is very thorough with instructions on how to get up and running quickly.

On YouTube we have a tutorial video on how to install the program and run an example report: QlikView Report Generator Tutorial - YouTube

This project is optimal for people who want to easily create large volumes of template-based Word reports using an existing or custom-built QlikView document.

It has been tested with QlikView Desktop versions 11.20, 12.0, and 12.1, Microsoft Word 2013 and 2016, and Windows 7 and 8.1 operating systems.

Re: Free Open Source QlikView Report Generator

You say in README.md:

Download and run the Setup.zip file to install the program for use, or download the entire repository and open in Visual Studios to customize and contribute.

I cannot find any Setup.zip file in your repo, can you please give a link to it?

Hey, sorry it took so long to get back to you. I must've missed this comment. The project has been updated recently and there is a tutorial video here which shows how to setup the project: QlikView Report Generator Tutorial - YouTube

Just on question... The generator works only with Personal Edition or i can make it work also with the licensed version?

Re: Free Open Source QlikView Report Generator

We have not tested it with a licensed version because we do not own a license. Please let me know if it does work!
