We have our extracts run nightly and they run fine. When we have to update an extract and re-run the extract, it fails. It just gives the "general script error" To get around this we have to delete the .qvd and rerun the extract. Any thoughts or suggestions on why this is happening? Thank for any insight.
Exactly why i said what I did. Check the load script and the create and store portion for the qvd. You mentioned that you have to delete the qvd and then it runs. Something in your script is trying to handle something and doesnt know what to do in this instance. Thats what my gut is telling me
what you could do is in debug mode run the script for each step. take note of where it fails when their is a qvd (so dont delete it just yet ) and if you need assistance post that next portion of the script here for us to have a look at
Are you suggesting that when changing the qvw it is setting file permissions on the qvd's? What we are doing is opening the qvw, adding a column to an extract, saving the qvw and then running the qvw through the QMC.
