Reloading same document at different intervals

Hi,

I have looked around, and surpirsed this has not come up before.  Maybe I am using the wrong key words...

Is it possible to reload the same document at different times through the server?  I am trying to run the same document at 8pm and 6.30am. Is there a way to schedule this?

I am just using QlikView Server, not publisher.

Thanks
Paul

Hi Paul,

Yes, you can always create two tasks, daily, one for each time of the day.

Hope that helps.

Re: Reloading same document at different intervals

Hi Paul,

I use a "Control" .qvw document to manage my multiple and infrequent reloads. I set the control document to reload every hour or half-hour and in the script check the time. If the script is true, then force the control document to FAIL by using something like this ...

If (hour(now()) = 20 and minute(now()) <= 30) or (hour(now()) =6 and minute(now()) >= 30) then

     Load nonexistant field from nonexistant table;

EndIf;

When the if statement is false, the control document succeeds, but when it is true it fails. You then set up your target document to run on the failure state of the control document. It's important to synchronise your scheduling (eg if you had your control document running every 5 minutes, the target document will refresh too often).

Hope this helps.

Re: Reloading same document at different intervals

HI,

I assume Miguel meant create a new task by remounting the folder. (only way I know how to create a new task)  I was able to mount the same folder. System;Setup;Management Service;QlikView Servers;QVS@Server Name; Folders.

This created a new task which I was able to reload.

Thanks you for everyone's help.

Re: Reloading same document at different intervals

Does remounting the folder cause the document to show up twice in Access Point?

Re: Reloading same document at different intervals

HI Rob,

I have set it to non-browsable as it is not something the customers needed to see.  When I did make it browsable it showed up twice. 

Is there any other way of making two tasks and this not happening?

ThanksPaul

Re: Reloading same document at different intervals

HI Qlik_techie,

My only concern with that is we do not have any thing monitoring the logs at present, so we use the GUI within QMC to check if everything ran successfully.  At present we are having a similar problem to this case:

http://community.qlik.com/thread/19097

So it is something we would like to keep on top of.

Though if there is a way to highlight it within the QMC that would be great?

Thanks

Re: Reloading same document at different intervals

if u want to see the logs...just check the option Generate Log file in the Document Properties---->General tab

it will be generated in both the cases...
