I have a similiar problem with this. I cant open the document if i click through the link in the document list. But if open the document by tiping directly to the file (qvp....) then the document is open.

I had the same problem. And it was caused by me, because I as admin change account that was running the QV services.

Than I changed it back to domain account (belongs to QV Aministrators group).

If you are using NTFS authentication, you should check the folder and file have the correct permissions set.

Re: Failed to open a Document.File not found

Hi,

I had the same Problem with the IE Plugin and "solved" / bypassed it.

If the file name or the folder name contains special characters like a "#" you will be able to see the QVW in QEMC and set it up, you will as well be able to see respectively to list it in the QV access point, but when you try to open it the link will / can not be resolved propperly and so you will get your "Failed to open a Document. File not found".

Just take out the special characters (I replaced the "#" with a "_") and you will see that it works.

It is a bug in QlikView, and in Version 10 it is still there.

Re: Failed to open a Document.File not found

Hi,

in the same folder that you have the .qvw's please delete the .meta and .shared files.

It worked for me.

HTH
