Has ApplyMap changed in Qlikview 12?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but in Qlikview 11 ApplyMap did not throw an error if it did not find the Mapping table. With Qlikview 12 it throws a map_id not found error. With what version/SR did this change happen?

Re: Has ApplyMap changed in Qlikview 12?

Hi Saket

in the Release notes for QlikView 12.10 (initial release) it says:

Changed error handling when mapping tables

You can find it on page 4, section "Other Changes Included in this release" -> "Changed behaviour in QlikView 12.10 scripts".

Previously, unsucccessful ApplyMap statements would be ignored and the reload would complete successfully. The new behaviour will let users know if the script is failing to apply a map as it was expected from the script.

It's really a new feature within QV 12 whereby I couldn't say in which release it was introduced - is this important an any way?

Nope. I wished to confirm it surely did not throw an error in Qlikview 11. I remember mistakenly placing the mapping table after the load statement which called it, and thinking why isn't it working and neither throwing an error. Wondering if this change happened in later SRs of QV11 or with QV12. Nevertheless, a welcome change to the function.
