    Qlik Sense dimensionless table - death spiral

    Megan Rawson


      In working on a Qlik Sense Table Object I managed to make Qlik Sense spiral into an error that may be unrecoverable.   The sheet is rendered unworkable and any objects on it cannot be recovered. 




      I was creating a table that was intended to be dimensionless.  Creating such a table is actually pretty cumbersome.  I tried to create a variation that summed all of the data into a dimension field. However, this appeared to cause Qlik Sense to spiral into some kind of infinite loop.  It spins 'forever' with a 'Cancel' button in the middle of the table.




      Clicking the 'Cancel' button seemed a good way to escape. Unfortunately, clicking the 'Cancel' button caused a popup that said 'Data update was cancelled' with the only option a button labeled 'Retry'.  Clicking the 'Retry' button brings Qlik Sense back to the spinner with the 'Cancel' button, and the cycle simply repeats.




      Closing the 'sheet' window and re-opening it results in a repeat of the infinite load.  The same is true of closing the app or Qlik Sense altogether and re-opening it.  All objects within the sheet cannot be edited. The entire app is rendered unworkable.




      The sheet becomes a minefield.   Opening it instantly locks up Qlik Sense.  Is there a way to interrupt the attempted load and recover?  Ver 2.2.4 Build:60.release/ms15.
