Batch reload

Is it possible to set a document to reload with a scheduled task without server running on the computer?

Thanks,

Batch reload

Hello Anthony,

Actually, yes. You have to create a BAT file and in one line set something like

"C:\Program Files\QlikView\qv.exe /r C:\Path\To\Document.qvw"
as the program you want to run in Scheduled Tasks. Quotes are needed (test if any) when the name contains spaces.

Regards.

Re: Batch reload

Hi Miguel,

How can I run this bat file,if its kept on a server and I need to run it from my qvw. I don't think I can use a macro to do so, since Macro will only run on client side and not server side?

Re: Batch reload

Hi,

This discussion is two years old! Things have changed quite a bit from then, and now you can use Publisher and create Supporting Tasks to run External Programs. That's how I'd do it.

Hope that helps.

Re: Batch reload

Hi, now that it is 9 years old, are there any newer / easier ways of doing this?

Thanks
