Hi Bradd,

yes this is possible, if you're running QV10. Create a project folder named same as your application plus "-prj". When saving, alls Objects will be stored there as XML files. When opened, object definitions are pulled from this project folder if existing. See the help file for more details.

Hi Bradd,

usually when you open the document, it uses the XML files from the project folder. But not only for objects, there is also a file QlikView.txt which lists all the objects. Same for sheets, document properties etc. They all must be in line, it is not enough only to copy XML files to the other folder.

I haven't had enough time yet to fully analyze all the files, but for the simple approaches I had so far, it worked. Maybe once I tried more complex models, I will post you a short step-by-step description here.

cheers

Another thought: Why don't you just copy the whole sheet by copy/paste? Changes in the objects you still can "distribute" through the XML files.

If you are using version 9, from the menu File -> Export -> Sheet Layout will generate the layout as xml file. You can import the layout from the menu File -> Import -> Sheet Layout.

I have used this to copy sheets from qvw file into another qvw file.
