Distribution not overwriting existing file

Hi all,

I am a newbie with Qlikview so my apologies if this is documented somewhere and I missed it. I have "Reload" setup for a source document and it works fine. I have a distribution rule setup under the "Manually" tab and it goes to a mounted folder. This too works fine. However, i want the .qvw there to be overwritten by the distribution when it runs every night. However, it simply renames the new version with a _0 at the end. Is there a way I can tell the distribution to simply overwrite the existing .qvw file?

Thanks for your help.

Distribution not overwriting existing file

I found the problem. I am writing this up in case it helps someone else in the future. I had to pick the "source" qvw file from a different folder and distribute it to the "target" folder from where end-users would access it. Before this, I was trying to distribute it to itself i.e. the source and target were the same file.

I think you probably have something set in the distribution task to change the name.

You look in the task settings and remove it. If you can't find it delete the task and create it again.
