It never happened to me before, nut it sounds to a corrupted/locked file. I had a similar issue with an antivirus software that locked the file, although it could be opened and the result was missing or corrupted files.
Try loading using the Debug instead of the normal script execution. You can do that in the script editor window.
Hope that helps.
Thanks for the reply,
Apparently the antivirus doesn't affect the QVD's on the server.
I tried the debugging mode and got this result:
PSL_PREMIUM (qvd optimized)
--- Script Finished ---
QvPath "F:\Program Files\QlikView"
Looks fairly normal, except of course that no data was fetched.
So if I understood that right, it didn't crashed, but it didn't return any record either.
Use before loading the following and see how many records the file is supposed to have (if any) with the function
LET vRows = QvdNoOfRecords('C:\path\to\file.qvd'); // store into a variable TRACE $(vRows); // show in the progress dialog
Hope that sheds some light
If the file size is not zero (unlikely), I'm afraid the file is likely damaged. It seems its headers are fine, hence the function returns the correct number of records. Have you tried opening that QVD in a different computer or with a different version of QlikView?
Hope that helps.
HI Every One,
I have the same issue when I Load a qvd file which was running fine for more than an year , is now showing a blank data in the preview mode when I load it.( the same screen shot as attached in this discussion.). Is the file Corrupted....?
If So Kindly share me the reasons for that so that I can manage that this would never happen again.
All Qlik experts I badly need your suggestions to sort out this problem.
Thanks In Advance.
