catch expression error in event logs from QV desktop?


I understand that Qlikview has introduced this new feature of detecting chart and other expressions related errors in event logs. We have been finding those error entries on our Qlikview server nodes event logs and are trying to fix this

The Qlikview SR11 service release document mentions that this feature can be enabled for both desktop and server version. However, I could not find any details on how to enable/use/find the expression error logs for Qlikview desktop

Could someone please guide me how to enable the expression errors to be logged to some event logs from Qlikview desktop (the same way we get those logs for qv server)

The below paragraph is taken from SR11 release notes

As a result of fixing bug 69228 “Syntax checker not working”, syntax error messages in object expressions are now returned to objects instead of returned as NULL. This may result in an object which rendered in SR10 or earlier, displaying an error message in SR11 (”Error in expression”).

In addition, QlikView Server will generate an error message in the QlikView Server event log every time a faulty expression is evaluated. To avoid disruption in existing production environments and potentially large growth in event log file size, this will only be ON in QlikView Desktop and by default turned OFF in QlikView Server.
