Possible bug with Inline Data Wizard in QlikView 12.20 SR4

I have found an alarming bug with the Inline Data Wizard that can be used for Inline Data tables.

I have a script tab that has an inline table.  After the inline table ends, I have some more code in the same tab.

Under some circumstances:

1)  I click on the little hammer icon next to the Inline table and edit the contents of the table.

2) I click on OK.

3)  The table contents are changed correctly in the script but:

4)  All of my code after the table in the same tab is cleanly and quietly erased!

I discovered this the hard way because my document started failing during reload and some expected tables were no longer present.  Fortunately, I had backups and was able to detect and recover the erased code.

This does not happen all the time with all inline tables.  I have not been able to determine why this happens when it does.

As a workaround, I have made sure that the inline table is the last table on its tab, but this bug should be fixed.

Please report it to Qlik so that this behaviour could be checked and fixed.

Beside this it might be a better workaround not to use this wizard else just to write the statement manually and if there are more as a few fields/fieldvalues it might be better to create this table within a txt-file or an Excel and to load the data from there. Also you could just use a copy & paste approach from Excel to Qlik and then adding a fileformat-statement to the inline-table to consider the tab-char as field-delimiter like:

load * inline [
F1 F2
a b
] (txt, delimiter is \t);
