    Nprinting 17 Objects missing when creating a report

    Andrew Moberg



      I have made my connection to the source QVW, however when I go to edit the Word report I only see objects that are contained on the first sheet.  The report objects that I am trying to bring into the report are on the second sheet which has a conditional Show Sheet based on the OSUser() function.  Would this be causing Nprinting to not be able to display the objects from that sheet?

          I cannot recall this from memory - i guess you can test it by removing condition - right?

          I would think it matters as i do use conditional hide & show (howevel on column level in table) in some of my reports and they behave like in Qlik (are shown or hidden depending on condition)

            Thanks Lech. I just tried removing the condition and it still doesn't display the objects from that sheet...not sure why?

              Hello Andrew,


              Greetings. Are you using the secondary object in levels? I hope you are using them as images and not as data because objects are supported to be exported as images but not as data (table).


              Thank You

                Qlik NPrinting inserts into the cache all objects that are on visible sheets. Objects that are on hide sheets (such as a sheet with a condition not met by the Windows user that runs the NPrinting services) will be not inserted into the cache.



                - remove the condition that hide the second sheet and save the .qvw

                - refresh the cache on Qlik NPrinting

                - try to edit the template, you should see all the object

                - add the condition to the QlikView sheet again


                Another alternative is to clone the .qvw, unhide the sheet and use the clone as Qlik NPrinting data source.


                Note that QlikView objects that are hide but saved on visible sheets will be included into the Qlik NPrinting cache.


                When you do a right click on a node of the template editor you will see only the objects of types that can be added on that specific node. For example text objects cannot be add as levels so when you add a new level you will not see any text objects. Text objects can be add as images so you will see them when you add an image.


                Best Regards,
