Scheduled Reload on QV11

Hi there folks..

I have been doing some reading in Qlikview but couldn't find the QV reload schedule info..

So lets say that I have a QVD\QVW file and I want to schedule a nightly reload.

From what I know, the QVD file is subjected to the behavior of the QVW file, so my guess is that this schedule is defined in the QVW file.

Since I have two cases - a stand alone QVW file (no QVD's) and on the other hand - a QVW file with QVD's as its source, my question is how do i shcedule a specific (automated), "behind the scene" Reload?

thanks,

Evya

Re: Scheduled Reload on QV11

In QMC > Documents > Source Documents > My.QVW - you should see this , click it and it shoudl allow you to create a task.

If you want to schedule a QVD file:

QMC > System > Supporting Tasks > QVD Creation > and you'll need to go through the setup.

I'm totally new to thsi whole QlikView thing so there may be easier/better answers out there.

No apologies requied

QMC = QlikView Management Console (on QlikView Server)

I guess I should have asked this question first, are you using QlikView Server or just just the QlikView Developer application?  If you're just using the developer tools I don't know of any way to automatically script and load data on a schedule but maybe someone else can chime in?

I hope that helps.

Thanks again td3wireman..

Unfortunately im still not familiar with QV server software.

I will have to leave this question unanswered(in the meanwhile) just for the possibility that someone will be able to help with scheduling a timed reload through QV developer application\QV Desktop (btw - are these 2 names refer to the same thing software?)..

Appreciate it anyways!

Re: Scheduled Reload on QV11

Hi

If you are not using a server, you can create a batch file and schedule that with any scheduling software (such as the Scheduled Tasks applet in Windows).

The syntax for the reload in your batch file is like this:

c:\Program Files\Qlikview\qv.exe /R MyQlikviewFile.qvw

Obviously, make sure the path to the qv.exe and the model are correct for your machine. Check "command line" in the reference manual for more.

Hope that helps
