Tables added in qlikview app in access point

Hello

We have 1 user who openen a document via the access point.

For doing further analyses, he added some extra tables in a qlikview application.

He is the only one who can see those tables, this is normal because you can not save a document opened via the access point.

When he right clicks one of those tables and he clicks remove, the table stays.

So it is not possible to remove them again.We even can not move them, or can not see properties of them.

This is allready there for 2 months, the qlikview server as wel as the workstation that opened the document in the access point did allready reboot.

Does anyone has a suggestion how to remove thos tables?

We are using QV11.20SR2

Kindest regards

Johan

Re: Tables added in qlikview app in access point

Hello Johan,

Those objects are stored into .Shared files that are always along the original QVW in the User Folders. Try stopping the QlikView services, backing up the .Shared file and renaming it, then restarting services. Test if you can add a new object and then delete it.

Make sure users have permissions to write or modify in the folder if the server is set to NTLM/NTFS

Hope that helps.

Thx for your answer.

This qlikview application is used by more then 100 users, but only 1 user has this problem.

What exactly will happen if i rename the .shared file?

Will it have an influence on the othe users as well?

Thx

Hi Johan,

Yes, if you rename the file it will affect all users because all store the info in the same .Shared file. It seems more a corruption of the file or something.

Take a look at the file with the QlikView Power Tools in http://community.qlik.com/docs/DOC-3059 in perticular the Server Object Handler, and see if you can change ownership to an admin user and then delete the object.

Hope that helps.
