Hi to all,

in different threads of the community I've read about the use of Wscript.sleep VBS function.

I'm actually using QlikView 9.0 SR3 with a Licensed Edition, and when I try to use the function in the macro editor I get the following error:

Object Wscript required

Have I to declare something to use this function?
I read somewhere that Wscript doesn't need to be bound to any object to be used.

Any suggestion would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance, regards,

ActiveDocument.GetApplication.Sleep 10000

Re: Wscript.sleep

Hi Stefano,

thanks for your suggestion.

Actually I used your ActiveDocument.GetApplication.Sleep 10000 but it has the effect to freeze the whole application for 10 seconds.

I'd like to try Wscript.shell to see if it has a different behaviour respect to the previous instruction.

And anyway I'd like to know also why I can't use this function that seems to work easily for other users!

Thanks again, best regards.
