Re: UnExpected Token

There is no problem with the code, Its the semicolon which causing the issue.

Hi Sri,

Did you get a solution to the problem?


Re: UnExpected Token

>>Its the semicolon which causing the issue.

Are you sure about that. The semi-colon is required there. Removing the semi-colon may simply hide the error or confuse the syntax check so the error is reported as something else.

In my case problem with new version of QV desktop. In previous version variable i.e. $(vVariable) without quotes but in new version quotes are needed: '$(vVariable)'

Re: UnExpected Token


I am receiving that error only when I try to run the application on the server. There seems to be no issue on the desktop (QlikView 12).
