How to read Embedded attachment's within Sharepoint List in Qlikview?


We have an urgent requirement from business wherein we are trying to read data from Sharepoint, however one of the requests is that we should also be able to read the all the attachment file’s, mostly excel sheets uploaded within Sharepoint.

By using the Microsoft Access bridge option, we are able to connect to Sharepoint but not read the Attachment. It just gives the URL when I reload my data from Access DB.

Any help? We went through the community as well, but didn’t find any satisfactory Answers

QVSource has some additional methods for talking to SharePoint and may

allow you to achieve what you want.

The General Web Connector in QVSource should be able to read the file and

save it locally. You can then reference the local file in your app.
