Sending Excel attachment same as PDF

Hi All,

I want to send an Email with excel attachment to 2 different people in two different Department. I have written a macro and it is doing the task when I click the button by directly opening the dashboard/access point.

Is there any option to call this macro after executing the job(i.e reload)  in QEMC, so that I can do a loop and distribute by business unit.  I had given the trigger on PostReload and run through external task, but unable to do the loop and distribute.

Please let me know if you need any more information.

Note : Business doesn’t need the PDF option here.

Not sure if anyone had a different results or solution, but note in Qlikview reference manual pg 905, " Macros Functionality Limitations" -

The following types of functionality are not to be used in the QlikView Server environment , as they may

cause unexpected results:

l Layout operations acting on the properties of sheets and sheet objects via SetProperties

l Operations changing document or user settings

l All operations related to the script, including Reload

l Data reduction operations, e.g. ReduceData

l Operations such as Save and Open document

The following triggers are not to be used in the QlikView Server environment, since they lack meaning or

may cause unexpected results:

I think the only way to send excel file is via MACRO.

for PDF you can schedule.
