QlikView rejects changes after saving work

Do any of you have this problem?

 

Lately (QlikView V.12) rejects all changes to my dashboard, both in the visuals as in the load script. It occurs right after a save, or even just before saving!

Very frustrating, as you lose all work you have done in the last few hours!

It doesn't happen very often, just now and then, but I get tired pressing Ctrl+S 300 times per hour....

It happens both locally and while working with QlikView on RDS (from home).

Re: QlikView rejects changes after saving work

Hi Marcus, I agree.  A collegue had the very same problem more than a year ago (I had a hard time believing him..), and this was far before any major update.

I'll let it rest for now. Everyone a warm thank you for your suggestions.

Maybe a different user has opened the application, too and the last who saved the file will win.

Re: QlikView rejects changes after saving work

You might think that, but I made sure this was not the case. It's in my personal folder, in the development section, and nobody even knows I was working on it. Thnx for the suggestion, anyway

Re: QlikView rejects changes after saving work

I would check the timestamp of the files within the explorer after saving them and before closing QlikView - and then closing QlikView and checking again. It should give a clear hint if QlikView is the cause - I rather doubt it. After bigger work I would also copy one as a backup. Further helpful might be to enable the creation of copies within the user-settings in tab saving.

If QlikView is not the cause I would suspect problems with your storage, user profile or any security tool.

Re: QlikView rejects changes after saving work

Hi Marcus,

I rather like your suggestion to create copies through user settings. Although: This morning QV reverted to an older situation WITHOUT saving or (re)loading, so I still suspect the cause to be QV...

I just saw a short blink on the screen and I got the old situation back (from an hour before).

Re: QlikView rejects changes after saving work

Do you use -prj folder?

Anti virus?

Re: QlikView rejects changes after saving work

If the file was really saved I don't see much possibilities how Qlik could revert to an older version - from a Qlik point of the view there is just one. If this really happens I would assume the cause rather by a security tool or any service (indexing, windows shadow copies and similar) which might block the current version and providing an older one. Therefore my suggestion with checking the timestamps.

Beside this which filesystem is used - AFAIK only windows is supported and no NAS.

Re: QlikView rejects changes after saving work

Hi  Jerry,

- no prj folder;

- yes, we use anti-virus (of course!)

Re: QlikView rejects changes after saving work

Hi Marcus,

Windows 10 was used. The file is stored on a server. Security runs through Sophos Protection.

Re: QlikView rejects changes after saving work

Recently I saw a message about an incompatibility from Sophos and the last Windows updates ... Maybe google could deliver more details to it whereby I think other causes would be more likely.
