Open Without Data

Is there a way to open a QVW file without data that has not been opened before? I know that you can right click on files in the Recently Opened Documents section, but I have to open several large files that will fail on my desktop. I'd prefer to be able to eliminate waiting for the failure and just open the document without data initially.

Any assistance is appreciated,

B

It is, check the "/nodata" cmd in in the qv.manual (6.1 Command Line Syntax)

I was hoping for something more like a checkbox on the open dialog.

You can achieve this by creating a new shortcut (right-click->New->Shortcut

In location text box put

"C:\Program Files\QlikView\qv.exe"  /nodata

Next

Name the Shortcut

Finish

When you start QV using this shortcut any qvw will be opened without data.

Hi,

There is no such option to just tick on user preferences or settings.

An alternate is:

Windows Start -> Run -> type in regedit.

In the registry if you add your qvw file name to be opened in the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Qliktech\Qlikview\Recent File List under the Item0

when you open Qlikview next time, the first recently opened application will be listed with the one you want or added in registry.

So you can right click and choose open with out data from the recently opened documents.

Cheers.

I would caution you about using /nodata option - from my experience I have learned that it also removes varialble content (QV10 SR3).

FYI, in QV 11 SR2 the open without data does not clear out variable data.
