I did not see a way to attach a external report from 17.2
And there is no qlik help page also
This is for 17.1 help page and if you look this for another version its not there. (please ignore if you already did this)
There is no proper workaround to as far as I know.
if you need to attach static report which never change. you can create a dummy nprinting report and attach.
Thanks - Sravan
If this helped please mark reply as correct or helpful
i dont think this possible.
you need to send through dot net code only i believe. from nprinting you cant attach
if it possible we can do manually and directly will attach right
ruggero.piccoli might help on this
One possible solution could be:
* Utilize the Custom option to create reports with these files you want to send:
* You don't need to add any objects in the template
* Add these reposts to the Publish Task
* In the e-mail screen select All reports attached or Select the ones you want

Thanks for the response. But one possible problem with Custom template would be, it is static. Whereas in our case these external files will be updated weekly and placed in a folder. Every time when NPrinting task runs, these updated files should be distributed to users.
In NPrinting 16 this was possible, since we can create a dummy report with these files and we can update the template whenever required. When the task runs these updated files will be distributed.
To achieve above , initially i thought of using External file attachment option but later found this is also static.
Is there any other possibility in NPrinting 17 to achieve this?
In Qlik NPrinting 17 the custom template is uploaded into the repository. In Qlik NPrinting 16 it was linked, this is the reason why in NPrinting 16 you could change the source file without changing the report.
At the moment you need to change the report template by uploading a new one. Daniel's suggestion is a workaround so it doesn't work for all business cases.
We don't know right now when this gap will be filled.
