Another option is QVReport which is very similar to crystal reports and not dependent on Excel. You can create pixel perfect reports and distribute to any email address or groups of emails without using the publisher. QVReport | QlikView | BInetwork
the main advantage of QVReport or NPrinting is that both are "reporting" tools and QlkView is not. The reporting option (PDF) on Qlikview is very basic and far from pixel perfect. Another advantage is the distribution capabilities for those who do not have publisher.
Being a Qlik product, Publisher is more integrated with QlikView.
NPrinting is a 3rd party piece of software but I use it for word, excel, ppt and Pixel Perfect pdf generation. It can pull objects from several QVWs at once an pull them together to make a report. This report can then be scheduled to automatically go to a list of users by email attachment or by sending to user's folders.
