Cannot print container from macro


I'm trying to print a container containing specifically formatted text objects from a macro for a variable amount of times.

This is the macro:

For i = 1 To ActiveDocument.Variables("vNumPrints").GetContent.String

     ActiveDocument.GetSheetObject("CT01").PrintEx ActiveDocument.Variables("vPrinterName").GetContent.String, false


I have no problem printing a text object alone, but for some reason Qlikview will not print containers from the macro.

Does anyone know an alternative / solution?

Thanks in advance

Re: Cannot print container from macro

I'm not sure if it's possible maybe you need to activate the container-objects or use another print-method - see here Re: How to activate object in a container on active sheet and have a look into APIGuide.qvw in your install-folder.

Alternatively you could use reports to print your container and/or (unfortunately very often) you need specialized print-sheets and print-objects.
