"The document xxx.qvw failed to load." How to repair my QVW file?

After once "memory-out" issue, I forced to save this file. Now when I open it, it will show me "The document xxx.qvw failed to load."

How to repair it? The macro script of it is very important to me.

"The document xxx.qvw failed to load." How to repair my QVW file?

Hi,

There are two threads that can help you:

http://community.qlik.com/message/103409#103409

"

Within the Start-page in the "Recently Opened Documents" you may select your file, rightclick and choose to open without data. Thus you may recover a crashed application.

If no longer available there, you may rename the crashed application, create a dummy application under the initial name, delete it and rename the crashed application back."

http://community.qlik.com/message/80358#80358

Use the following command (in windows prompt):

"C:\Program Files\QlikView\Qv.exe" /nodata "C:\QlikView Data\Sales Dashboards.qvw"

Afer that you can try to open it with out data.

Both cases will do exactly the same, try to open the qvw without any data.

Please, make a copy of the file before trying this.

You may or may not open it, but if you do you will have no data and you will need to reload to restore the data.

You will lose all your variables.

Hope this helps,

Erich

I tried, but it also failed. And I tried to modify  .qvw => .txt, but I have not found my macro script.

Have another way to save my macro script?

If you have a prj folder under the document, delete all files in the prj folder and try to open again.

Hi Rob,

No proj folder, it was copied from a pc to another.

but it opens fine in the original machine which it was used to develop.

This SHOULD be marked as the "CORRECT ANSWER" since it is!

I just saved a ton of time thanks to this post.   The file did not appear on my recent doc list since QV had crashed, but I was able to use option 2, the DOS command (yes i said DOS ) and it worked perfectly.

Thank you.
