cannot open my qvw file after reload

Hi Qlikview Community,


unfortunately my qvw file crashes when i want to open the file. Is there a way to open files with no records?

Thank you!

Within the Start-page in the "Recently Opened Documents" you may select your file, rightclick and choose to open without data. Thus you may recover a crashed application.

If no longer available there, you may rename the crashed application, create a dummy application under the initial name, delete it and rename the crashed application back.

I was in the process of debugging an expression formula when the app crashed.  Now when I open that document the message is "The document Y:\.. Failed to load.  Followed by a second message "failed to open document".
