    Unable to open a file in a Shared Folder through the Reload Task

    Amit Deshpande


      I am attempting to load a few Excel files residing in a Shared network folder. I can access the folder from the server by using the UNC Path (file://\\netapp1\\\netapp1\....)

      I can even reload the Qlikview document manually using the same path and can retrive data successfully.

      However, when I setup a reload task on this document, it fails and gives the following message in the log file:


      8/15/2011 10:28:28 AM:       Error: Cannot open file '\\netapp1\....\ABC.xls' The operation completed successfully.

      8/15/2011 10:28:28 AM:       General Script Error
      8/15/2011 10:28:28 AM:       Execution Failed
      8/15/2011 10:28:28 AM:      Execution finished.


      It doesn't make sense to me why the task fails when my Qlikview Admin user has access to the folder. I even tried mapping the folder to a Z:\ but it still does not work.
