    add cooments to load tasks

    Alec Harf

      hi all,


      I have about 300 load tasks and I need to add a comment to each task. wondering if there is an easy way to do rather than going in each one, edit it and add comment..


      wondering if i can read the tasks from the xml files and somehow add the comments...


      let me know if you have any ideas..

          Hi Alec,


          I think there is no such option, you have to manually add the Trace commands in individual Qlikview files.

            Hi Alec,


            As Jagan mentioned we don't have any ways to achieve this , we need to do it manually

              The others already confirmed that there are no tools in QMC (or otherwise) to do this. But since you asked for ideas, I thought the following might be helpful.


              In the Publisher Database (QVPR) folder, open a file called DocumentTask.xml. It contains all Task definitions. Scroll down until you reach the end of the schema. Next there should be some 300 lines of single-line <DocumentTask ... /> definitions. Each line has a Description="..." attribute. Some may be filled if you tried to enter task descriptions through the QMC. Others will be empty.


              You could write a PS-script or a small program to fill the Description tags. Or create an XML transformation schema to do all that using proper XML techniques.
