input field and qvw.shared files

Hi everybody,

I have a server with a 8.5.

I published a document with an input field inside a table into my report.

If I change via web some fields, in the input field, the values I put down are correctly written into the qvw.shared file but if I refresh the document I lose all the input changes I have made, in other words the input field results to be unuseful

Is there any settings or parameter I forgot ?

thanks in advance for your help

Are you running SR6? SR6 corrected a very similar input field bug...

input field and qvw.shared files

Hi everybody,

I have installed QlikView Server 9.0 and all works well about input field and shared file but I have one more question:

Is it possible to share the same table from different users ? If I insert a value into a field and an other user does the same, can I see the value the other user have inserted in the meanwhile ?

In other words:

I see that into the qvw.shared file are stored the values referred to every user.

For example:

user1 field_bdg 10.000

user2 field_bdg 30.000

and so on...

but actually every user can see only the changes he has made, not the values inserted by other users ?

Is there a way to share all the information inserted by every user ?

Thanks in advance for your help

Yes, you can do this by Collaboration Objects. First, you need to make sure that the QVW allows this. Go to Document Settings --> Server tab, and make sure the 3 QlikView Server Collaboration checkboxes on the page are checked. Next, in the AccessPoint, a user would create a new object (say a table with an input field column in your case). In the Collaboration Pane (that can be opened using the toolbar on top), the object would appear under My Items. A user can right-click on the object and select Share With Everyone. This would make the object a Collaboration Object and all users can see and make changes to it.

Hi Vlad,

Thank you. I tried the solution you suggested:

I put all the settings you wrote down in your email but I still havent reached the point I was looking for.

Maybe I forgot some peculiar settings in the server pane or elsewhere

Now tow users can see the same object but everyone can see only the changes he has made in his own.

User b can see user b data, User a can see user a data

where I was wrong ?

thanks in advance for your help

input field and qvw.shared files

The last step is important--you need to make sure that the user who created the object right-clicks it in Collaboration Pane\My Items, and selects "Share With Everyone."

Assuming you've done that already, can users see changes made to other properties (not input fields)? For example, change the style of the object to use different colors and see if all users can see that change. The reason I'm asking is that it's possible input fields just cannot be shared because of either a bug or an undocumented feature of QlikView...

I tried to modify as you suggested some of the properties of the table (style and so on), but it's still not possible to see the changes the other users have made. Maybe there's something in the server settings that I've missed ? Thanks a lot.

input field and qvw.shared files

Input field values cannot be shared between members because they are user specific. As written earlier the input field values is stored within the qvw.shared file (which is a qv unreadable format).

The only way to share the inputfield values is to use vbscript to store them into a csv file, and when reloading, load the csv file into the application. You also need to run a macro onOpen, which restores the inputfield values.

I've worked quite a bit with the inputfield and i must say that the function need alot of tweeking before i can say im satisfied with its behavior.
