Error while setting a QV Variable in a batch file

Hi,

Hopefully there is a simple solution for this. I have a batch file that goes like this:

ECHO OFF

CLS

"C:\Program Files\QlikView\QV.exe" /L /VvGroup="Cake" "Path\v2\Demo_Model.qvw"

Echo Party Food Done!

which works perfectly, the model opens, sets the variable and refreshes - as you can see the variable set is vGroup = Cake, but as soon as i set the variable to a string with a gap:

ECHO OFF

CLS

"C:\Program Files\QlikView\QV.exe" /L /VvGroup="Party Food" "Path\v2\Demo_Model.qvw"

Echo Party Food Done!

vGroup = Party Food

I get an error.

Any ideas on a way around this?

Thanks,

Regards,

Richard

Re: Error while setting a QV Variable in a batch file

Thanks Sergey,

I did something similar,

I actually added an underscore to the variable name in the batch file and used a replace formula in the model to get the space back in.

Batch File:

ECHO OFF

CLS

"C:\Program Files\QlikView\QV.exe" /L /VvGroup="Party_Food" "Path\v2\Demo_Model.qvw"

Echo Party Food Done!

Edit Module in Model:

Sub AfterReload

Set v = ActiveDocument.Variables("vGroup")

vGroup = v.GetContent.String

vGroup = Replace(t, Chr(95), Chr(32))

(....I could then use vGroup when going ahead with my Macro....)

End Sub

Thanks

Richard

Re: Error while setting a QV Variable in a batch file

Hi!

The one way I know is to use additional variable.

/VvGroupType=1

and rewrite variable vGroup;

=if(vGroupType=1,'Party Food')
