    Cannot save data



      Am evaluating QlikSense Desktop but cannot create my first dashboard.


      I've opened a .csv file and can see all my data... however, when I click on "Load Data" I get:


      An Error Occurred


      The Object could not be saved.



      Note that I am using a roaming profile and most of my files are stored on a DFS share.


      I'm happy to save to a local drive - but can't see any options to let me choose.


      Can anyone help?

          Hi Andrew


          You need to create a "Folder connection".


          Let's say you called it "StoreFolder" and your loaded data table is called "myTable",

          then you store the data as a qvd using this syntax:


          Store myTable into [lib://StoreFolder/myTable.qvd(qvd);

            Hi Andrew - can you please let us know if this helps?


            (please make a backup of your registry first)


            This mostly likely has to do with the roaming profile - as I understand we require a local documents location for the apps to be stored with the free version of Desktop, which is usually: C:\Users\<user profile>\Documents\Qlik\Sense\Apps


            • Close Desktop
            • Open regedit
            • Seach for HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders
            • Change the path in "Personal" entry to a local path, but remember the old path!
            • Change the path in "Personal" to your old.
            • Start Desktop
