I have two users who have bookmarks that no longer load.
I suspect that this is due to the data structure changing.
Is there a way of "interrogating" the metadata using a certain tool.
I can open the metadata file in a product such as Notepad++ and see the "title" of the bookmark, but beyond that there is a lot of hierogliphics and weird characters.
If i can open the metadata file i am assuming i should be able to see the parameters of the bookmark.
Any advice gratefully received.
On a similar subject i noticed that the metadata file is 17meg(sales.qvw.shared) and the qvw is 34 meg(sales.qvw).
Does anyone else have such a huge metadata file.
NB the sales.qvw.meta is 4 kb !!!!!!
Thanks in advance
I also recommend to remove the objects on the .shared file through the QMC.
In addition to that I find very very useful the .shared file cleaning tool introduced since 11.2 SR4 version.
You can find a tutorial on how to use it on the Release Notes of 11.2 SR4 and 11.2 SR5.
I have done some further investigation on this now using Qlikview
This allows me to interrogate the bookmarks from the shared file.
One user has 3 blank bookmarks out of a total of 39.
The possibilities i can see are as follows:-
We have a "cluster" and i wonder whether a single "shared" file if updated simultaneously by 2 users could cause an issue.?
Does anybody else have experience of this ?
Thanks n advance
Don't mean to repeat myself, but, if you are running version 11.2 SR4 or later, could you please follow this procedure:
1) Copy the QVS.exe file into a backup folder (let's say c:\Temp)
2) Copy the .shared file you want to analyze in the same folder (c:\Temp again).
3) Execute "c:\Temp\QVS.exe" -x "c:\Temp\shared_file_to_analize.shared" -v on cmd
4) Share here the result of the log file.
You can find detailed information about this process here:
Thanks for the advise which i understand
However...does this procedure have to be done on a Qlikview server.
I am a little nervous of a command line running on a production server?
