Re: How to create a batch file

Hi Avantika,

For batch file do you mean a Windows batch file? If so, is it going to be read from QlikView? Or do you mean you want to create a batch file to schedule a task to reload a QlikView file that reads from a third file? In this case, the answer is put this line (modified if any according to your folders) in an empty .BAT file

"C:\Program Files\QlikView10\qv.exe" /r "C:\File.qvw"

Hope that helps.

How to create a batch file

Hi Miguel

I am not sure about Windows batch file, but yes I want to create a batch file to schedule a task to reload a QlikView file that reads 'file.txt' file.

I have installed 'Grep for Windows', used for file downloading log monitoring. From this I want to read logs & display them in a report. Report will contain details like  username, his/her ID, name of the application he/she has accessed etc.

Re: How to create a batch file

Hi,

I'm afraid I'm not getting your requirement right. If you already have QlikView Server, then create the task using the QlikView Enterprise Management Console, going to the Documents tab, clicking on each document you want to reload and setting it up in the right pane, Reload tab.

If you don't have QlikView Server, the line in the post above will do. Then use the Windows Scheduler to perform the reload. But I don't see the relation that Grep for Windows has to all the above. QlikView Server generates several logs you can configure using the QEMC in System, Setup, QlikView Servers, Logging tab and System, Setup, QlikView Web Servers, General. In addition, you can create a log for each file to control the reload process, from within the open document in QlikView Desktop, Settings, Document Properties, Genearl tab, Generate Logfile and usually, Timestamp in logfile name.

Check anyway this QlikView that analyzes the logs above and see if that helps.

But if all the above is wrong or is not what you were looking for, please specify what do you already have built, what do you want, some examples you have seen in the QlikView portal and so.

Regards.

Re: How to create a batch file

Hi Avatnika,

Then my first reply is fine. Just put that line, changed as you need, in a .BAT file. Then go to the Windows Scheduler and create a new task that executes this BAT file and you are done.

Hope that helps.

Re: How to create a batch file

Hi Avantika,

Take a notepad and save it as .bat in that mention below script, But ensure..you have given proper extension of the file or not.

""C:\Program Files\QlikView10\qv.exe" /r "C:\File.qvw""

  Process is nothing but the first part willl open the instance of the Qlikview

, /r for reload (other options are /l./v..etc) and third part is qlikview application which is in mentioned path.

Regards,

Ravi.
