As stated on page 870 of the Qlikview Reference Manual "The complete specification of the QlikView Automation interface can be found in the folder Documentation of your QlikView application." the Document should reside inside the installation folder. Since i was not able to lacate it there it took me quite some time to finally find it. I guess a more prominent location for this ressource would have saved me (and possibly others) a lot of time. So i'm taking initiative to repost a link to the finally useful thread.
