    Invalid path error opening Excel - Workaround found, but why?

    Alexis Hadjisoteriou

      I have a very unusual problem with the Qlik Sense Desktop edition for which I found a solution but cannot explain it so I would welcome suggestions:

      a) I create a Connection to the folder that stores my Excel files. The connection path is:


      When I select the Excel file using "Select Data" I get:


      b) When I create another connection but this time using the machine name instead of "C:"


      and selected the same Excel file and all is fine. I can select the file, the script gets inserted and the data loaded fine when I load data.




      FROM [lib://ExcelTest2/SAPObjectTypes.xlsx]

      (ooxml, embedded labels, table is Sheet1);


      Can someone PLEASE throw some light on this?
