How to recover Macro code from a corrupt QVW file

Hi,

I am trying to open a file and it says "Failed to Load".

I have tried it opening without data but couldn't do that.

I want to recover Macro code written in the file which is the most of effort.

Please help.

Thanks,

Narsingh

Re: How to recover Macro code from a corrupt QVW file

Maybe ... just maybe you could be lucky by trying to make a project folder:

Create a folder with the same name as the QVW-file but without the extension QVW and with -prj as postfix:

ABC.QVW

Should create a folder named:

ABC-prj

Then try to open the app without data and see if it populates the ABC-prj folder with XML-files....

If you get the same error message and nothing is created in the folder then you are out of luck ... more or less as far as I know ...

You could try all things from here Document Failed to Load but I believe there isn't much hope.

In addition: Are you trying to access the qvw directly or per qv start-window - if the filename or path had changed it couldn't find the file.
