We are actually trying this with Qlik Sense which has it whole set of issues just because it is new.
I have tried to close everything. I have stopped and started all of the nPrinting services. I have deleted the report and started a brand new one several times.
I am at the end of my rope with this one.
NP 17 can be painfull
Have you considered to upgrade to version 17.2.2 ? Perhaps this can fix your problems. Very easy to upgrade.
Then it sounds like you should try to Reload Metadata in connection. If somebody altered the QVF you need to reload metadata on the connection. But I guess you already know that...
Then the error you report seems like your filter doesn't work. Will the preview return something, if you remove the filter? If it does, it's the filter which bugs you. A general error is to select "Value is" on numeric fields, despite the fact that you can actually select values and save the filter.
We actually are on 17.2.2 already. We had to get that build to fix another issue that we had with images not working in templates.
This has been quite a journey so far.
It turns out that the filter issues was me not knowing that I needed to choose Numeric Value Is as you suggested.
In addition to that I was having all kinds of other issues. But after uninstalling and reinstalling the editor, stopping and starting services, and deleting connections and building them again, it all seems to be working today.
Fingers crossed that it will stay that way.
Thanks for your response. Merry Christmas to you also.
I'm also having the same issue of columns being updated all the time I open Nprinting Designer. I'm also having Nprinting 17.2.2 only, but still having the same issue. I don't understand why specific columns get updated every time I open Report Template in NPrinting Designer without which I can't preview the report.
One more weird thing I observed for these columns, was, even after unchecking "Keep Source Formatting", it comes back after I reopen Nprinting Designer.
Hi rittermd, were you able to resolve this one ?
Thanks in advance.
I managed to somewhat solve this one. You still might need to update the title names but at least if you have renamed them manually, they retain their short name. Building e.g. Word templates with a really long and complex expression as name is a mess.
The solution is to use master items instead. Use the object title or similar to distinguish them within your master library in Qlik Sense. Much easier to use.
