Creating a summary model from multiple models, by importing only certain Objects

I am trying to create a summary model from multiple different models, just by drawing in selected Objects.  This will be a like a Summary Dashboard of multiple models.

In previous versions of Qlikview you got a plugin to draw in Qlikview models where you could just select certain Objects from that model, using Object ID's.

Is there any easier way to do this in Qlikview 10?

If you are talking about combining multiple charts from several different QVW files in a central dashboard, Your basic options are still the same in QV 10 as they were in 9.

1) Recommended - Create an entirely separate QVW that holds just enough summarized information to draw the individual charts you want. Use document chaining to open the other documents as needed for more detailed analysis.

2) Not Generally Recommended - Use the QlikView Workbench to create a webpage that actually shows the charts from the separate QVWs in one dashboard. Note, that displaying this dashboard will actually result in opening (and loading into memory) ALL of the QVWs that have a chart on the dashboard. This is a fairly inefficient use of RAM and that is why this method is not generally recommended.

Thanks for the reply.  Will try document chaining with the separate QVW.
