Qvw LineageInfo

Hello fellow Qv'ers

Im trying to retrieve the qvw data lineage info from all my QVW but for some reason this data isn't present in the QVW when loading into QV as XML.

The lineage info resides in (XmlSimple, Table is [DocumentSummary/LineageInfo]).

Does anyone know why some qvw's doesn't have this info? I also have a lot of QVW's that also miss the DocumentSummary/FieldDescription and DocumentSummary/TableDescription.

Re: Qvw LineageInfo

I believe that if you drop the data (tables) from a QVW during reload, you lose the lineage.

You might consider using the Governance Dashboard to scan both the QVWs and the QVDs. Then you should see some lineage.

Find the Governance Dashboard on QlikView Governance Dashboard or on the main QlikView download site.
