you can test for current date (and time ..), and if it is Saturday than load a file that does not exist. Script will fail, and nothing gets distributed over the previous (valid) file.
Just let everybody know this is not a failure, and call the task "supposed_to_fail_every_weekend"
if weekday(now()) = 6 then
trace it is saturday, failing;
load * from xxxx.txt;
I'm not running publisher.
Looking at your screen shot those are exactly the features I require...and exactly the features you'd expect to see in and 'Enterprise Server' package. I've always assumed (and never been told otherwise by Qliktech even when in technical pre-sales) that Enterprise handled the reloading of documents as required and a good level of distribution and Publisher simply added additional 'Publishing' functions such as email pdf distribution and the slicing of .qvw's.
To me Publisher now seems to be a very mis-named product and that it's strange that a so called Enterprise product is actually a stripped down version of what is functionally possible and is readily available.
If there's a way of achieving this functionality without Publisher (which at the cost of an Enterprise licence is for too prohibitive) then I'd love to hear about it, alternatively I'll suggest it as a feature for v11.

We update our reports using a windows batch file / windows scheduler...
Batch file command line...
"C:\Program Files (x86)\QlikView\QV.exe" /r C:\QlikViewDocuments\Timbmet_Live\Scripts\D01.qvw
You can also reload via the "QlikView Management Console" - I know that you can do this by time but have not seen how to restrict this to specific dates / times - perhaps worth further investigation?
Hope this helps...
