VariableDescription Load from QVW

 

Hi,

Just upgraded to the November 2018 Release (Patch 1) and the following script to pull in variables from a qvw doesn't work now.

Has anyone come across this and is there a way to fix it? Thanks in advance! Ed

VariableDescription:

LOAD

Name as VariableName,

RawValue

FROM [$(vDocument)]

(XmlSimple, Table is [DocumentSummary/VariableDescription]);

Re: VariableDescription Load from QVW

This is most likely related to BNF:

In November 2018/12.30 track, you can no longer disable BNF syntax checking as you could in prior releases, see attached Release Notes document regarding that change.

I would suspect it has to do with the [ ]'s around the variable, or potentially the other set by Table is.  Hopefully this may help you get things resolved.  I am going to move this to the QlikView product forum as well, others may have something else to try as well.

Brett
