Discussion Board for collaboration on QlikView Scripting.
as you can see, I was wondering if was possible to run qlikview file from qlikview file.
needs to run
Is such thing possible?
Yes, it is very much possible. However, you should play with BAT script with reload script. Execution should be thru qv.exe.
Create a .bat file
[PATH]\qv.exe /r D:\New folder\first.qvw
[PATH]\qv.exe /r D:\New folder\second.qvw
I dont understand,
what is the script needed to run second file, from the first file?
I'd use the management console to schedule tasks to run the qvws. You would set a timeframe or manually start the first qvw and tell the second one to run upon completion of the first.
You can also use a windows task scheduler to run them.
First.qvw uses data that Second.qvw generates. In the Management console, first.qvw is running after the second.
If the data is missing for the first.qvw I want to force run of the second.qvw within the First.qvw.
if the first.qvw uses data from second.qvw, doesn't second.qvw always need to run before first.qvw (not just if data is missing?)
The second runs before the first one,
and I want to make sure that first one has data in case that second one failed.
Bottom line, how to execute script from second.qvw within the first one?
