Open Qvw using 'Open Qlikview Document' action

Hi to all, i´m having some trouble to call a qvw from another using the 'Open Qlikview Document' external action. I don't know what path/url i have to put to make this works on the Access Point with IE Plugin.

Now i'm using QV Server and desktop 10 SR2 and both applications are in the same folder.

I've tried

1) Using the url of the called application that gives the Access Point when i opened (no results, nothing happens)

2) Put only the name of the application (it only works with QV Desktop)

3) Put the path with qvp://servername/application_name.qvw (error on the path)

4) Put the path with qvp://servername/qlikview/application_name,qvw (error on the path too).

Anyone has used this option with this configuration??? What i´m doing wrong?? I need some special configuration on the server??? (Actually, both applications are in the publisher and i can use both from the access point, but i need to open one from another passing the selections)

Well, thanks in advance to all!

Regards!

Sergio

Open Qvw using 'Open Qlikview Document' action

Hi,

We are using in several scenarios.

Are you keeping the first and second file in the same location?

If yes then write this in the open qlikview document action.

='filename.qvw'

Other wise use the relative path. For example if the second file is in some other folder (2 folder steps back) then

='..\..\filename.qvw'

Regards

Re: Open Qvw using 'Open Qlikview Document' action

Hi, thanks Phaneedra for your response. In my scenario, both applications are in the same location. I put the the path/url as you said, but i had another error, never seen before. This is the capture of it.

error.bmp

It says: QlikOcx -->  Error opening the document. You have not access to the document.

But, i have access to it, from the Access Point i can open it perfectly. I have a named call with autorization to this document, and it happens with both security schemas, DMS and NTFS (same error). There is some special configuration for the documents in the server to do this??

Regards!

Open Qvw using 'Open Qlikview Document' action

We use this is excel documents - it may help.

http://ServerLocation/qvplugin/opendoc.htm?document=QVDocument.qvw?vOpenSheet=1

the last part (?vOpenSheet) sends the amount I want the variable vOpenSheet to be. The variable is used when the document opens to go to a specific tab/sheet on the document.

hth,

Open Qvw using 'Open Qlikview Document' action

@Sergio

There is no special configuration to allow the doc to see as long as you have you ".meta file" is created, or either i am not aware of.

But you can try another option since you are able to access through the Access point.

Copy the access point link and add a action " open URL" and past your link.

Re: Open Qvw using 'Open Qlikview Document' action

Hi Phani,

I used absolute path to call the qvw (Button's Properties->Action-> External-> Open Qlikview Document).

When the qvw is accessed using Access Point of Server, throwing an error "Fialed to Open Document. Invalid Path"

Am I missing anything, please help me.

Thanks

Re: Open Qvw using 'Open Qlikview Document' action

Hi Sergio,

If both documents are into the same folder just write into the document name textbox the name of the document including the qvw extension. It worked fine into my access point. If you want to keep the selections from the first document  remember two facts:

  • Fields must have the same name into both documents
  • "On Open document/sheet" triggers could modify the selections.
