Failed to open a QlikView document user access error

Hi everyone. I' new in Qlikview's world.

I have a document qvw, and I put user access security, with on line data. In that place I wrote username and password, but I forgot the access field, I left it in blank.

Now I have problem to open that document because it open a user dialog with a User ID Field, I write the user, but it don't recognize it and the dialog appears again.

So, I didn't a Back up before [Smiley Sad]

I'm sure about the user that I wrote.

Somebody can help me with that problem.

Thank you very much.

Regards, Max

Failed to open a QlikView document user access error

Max,

I'm afraid you're out of luck...it's always a good idea to backup your document before you apply Section Access, especially if you don't have much experience (it's quite common to get locked out). The only thing I can suggest is to contact QlikTech Support--maybe they built in some sort of "superadmin" user that will work with any application...

Good luck!

Actually if it's Qlikview 10 I have a way to get into the document that locked you out of Section Access.

Let me know if you still need help.

I have spent a lot of time writing code to do this, it's not easy to explain nor am I sure I want to share my code, but If you want to send me a document that your are locked out of either because of forgotten password, changed NT UserID or section access I can open it, comment out the section access and security and send it back.

I hear the QVW can be sent to Qliktech in Sweden to be unlocked too.

Right now I am willing to do it for free, but maybe able to turn it into a side business at a reasonable fee and quick turn around.

Let me know if you are interested in my help or if you want to test me first with a new QVW purposefully locked out.
