    Unable to connect to Microsoft SQL Server

    JD Brannock



      My team is looking at using Qlik for slicing and dicing some data, so I downloaded the Qlik Sense Desktop software to try it out. But I have been unable to connect to our Microsoft SQL Server where the data resides.


      There is no error code -- what's baffling is that I can't even get the software to try to connect. I opened up the "Create a connection - Microsoft SQL Server" dialogue, enter the DB information, and then...nothing happens. From the tutorial I know that I should click the little right arrow at the bottom of the page to initiate the connection, but that arrow is grayed out and clicking it does nothing. I've attached a screenshot so you can see what I mean:


      (obviously I changed the actual host name, but it doesn't change the nature of the problem)


      I talked to a sales associate who was very nice but couldn't help -- s/he said I should tag Mike Tarallo on this issue...


      Any ideas?
