Block Excel export

Hi everyone,

I've searched about this topic but I don't find anything.

I want to block the excel export on some QlikView files. I've removed the Excel button, but I can export with right clic on objects. The reason of this query is because I have some users that I want they see the information, but they don't export on their computers all information.

Thanks a lot.

Jose

Block Excel export

Jose, I can think of two ways of achieving this. You can disable exports in the document properties, security tab.

Another way would be disabling all exports in the server configurations.

Re: Block Excel export

Hi Daniel,

I've tried to disable exports on the document properties, but after accept the form, the option is enabled.

Next week I will try to do that in the server settings.

Thanks.

Jose, if you tried that using a document administrator user it will override the security settings. You should try doing that in the server, through the plugin.

Re: Block Excel export

Hi Daniel,

I did that disabling exports on the document properties. I have done a new document where I'm the owner and I haven't had any problem to check the option.

Now is perfect, but I have curiosity for to do the same through the server. I have looked for that option in the server but I haven't found anything (Status, Documents, Users or System tab). I think is a good way to have some files where users can export with QVW Client but not from web.

Thanls.

Re: Block Excel export

Sorry José, I was talking out of memory. Apparently that option has been removed in QV10.
