You will lose layout changes after data reload failure

If data reload fails, QlikView will ask whether the document should load its old data. Do not approve that action! Otherwise it will throw away any layout changes you had wanted to save.

ProTip to save you hours of work and frustration.

Hello @khatinsek,

Thanks for sharing your insight.

I guess this would depend on the scenario you are testing and working, so I would suggest be mindful when accepting loading the old data or not based on such.

As you mentioned, selecting the right action can avoid frustration.

Cheers,

Albert

In my experience, you should never reload with pending layout changes. Always save your layout changes before changing / reloading the script (and vice versa - if you change the script, don't make layout changes until you've saved the result). This helps keep things sane and prevents unexpected reversions.

And if you choose "No",  don't you also lose your changes?

"Save before reload" in User preferences is also a handy setting.
