    Connection to data source in NPrinting template gives error

    Cristina Punga

      Hi everyone,

       

      Please help me on below error message. I tried to create a connection via DATA>Connections within the NPrinting template (which seemed to work fine when I'm still editing the template, I mean the values show up, they're correct). But when I want to use Preview, an error like below appears. Are these types of connections within the template not supported?

       

      Thanks in advance!

      Cristina

          Hi,

           

          To create Connections refer to this page Creating connections ‒ Qlik NPrinting

           

           

          Best Regards,

          Ruggero

              Thanks Ruggero but none of the specified types of connections in that link actually refers to my question, I'm not talking of connections created in NPrinting interface where there's the Apps button, but rather the Data>Connections in the Excel interface directly (all the while being in the NPrinting Excel template).

               

              I do want to mention that I also tried to create the connection in Excel beforehand, and then using that excel file as a custom template for NPrinting, but it's the same error popping up.

               

              My guess would be that for now this option is not supported. Which would make a good thing to implement in future NPrinting versions.

               

              If anyone else knows otherwise, please let me know.

              Thanks!

                  Hi,

                   

                  I linked that help site page because the listed connections are the only connections supported.

                  You can read data from:

                  - QlikView documents local, on network foldes, on a QlikView Server or on a cluser

                  - Qlik Sense apps on a Sense server

                   

                  I understood that you was trying to create a connection from Excel menu, but this is not supported so you get the error.

                   

                  You must create and use at least one of the connections listed in the help site page.

                   

                   

                  Best Regards,

                  Ruggero
