Hi,

define the variable (vTest) and an InputBox with that variable.

Set a document Variable Event Trigger so that when the value of the variable changes, it is "triggered".

Define the trigger as External -> Open QlikView Document, and select the QV document you want to open.

HTH.

Add an Open Document action to the OnChange and/or OnInput trigger of the variable. You can find these on the Triggers tab of the document properties window.

Re: Trigger to open new document

Can you walk me through an example?

I understand how to get to the variable triggers and I'm assuming I would select external and then set variable, but I'm not sure about the next steps in terms of the variable name and defining the value.
