    batch mode - error

      Hi all,


      I have an error using batch mode to reload a document.


      I tried to run this command:

      C:\Program Files\QlikView\Distribution Service\QVDistributionService.exe -r=D:\test.qvw


      And have this output log:

      I tried with an easier document and the command runs normally. Manual reload works very well too.


      Thank you.

          That’s an interesting one as there is a line saying

          16/02/2012 11:23:49    Information    TheSource Document reload complete. DocumentPath=D:\test.qvw

          You say Manual reload works ok, is this when you run the reload from theDeveloper application?


          It is likely to be something in the script or security.

          When you open the document in the developer, goto the settings menu,document properties and tick the Generate Logfile option.

          Re-run the batch job and have a look at the D:\test.qvw.log file that hasbeen created, it should show which part of the script has failed.


          Alternatively it could be security, does the batch command use your usernameor is there a QlikView Service username that has been created? it could be thatthe username doesn’t have permission to open the database/file if one is beingused.

              Done & fixed! It was a problem of permissions to the DB


              Thank you.

                  ...now the problem is: I can set a variable and its value from command line. How can I invoke this variable into the script??


                  Thank you.

                      I'm not sure how you would pass a variable with the command line

                      BUT you could use the include() statement in your script to load a section of qlikview script code directly from a file.




                      where you edit the abc.txt as needed and it could say

                      let my_var=123;

                        • batch mode - error

                          I am using this command line:

                          C:\Program Files\QlikView\Distribution Service\QVDistributionService.exe -r=D:\test.qvw


                          and am adding just a parameter per variable, as I've read the guide.


                          C:\Program Files\QlikView\Distribution Service\QVDistributionService.exe -r=D:\test.qvw -vTest=2

                          This is to integrate a web application with qv document in server environment. The web application is a PHP CMS and I can use exec function to call the command line and send the first filter to qv document. The document will be (partial) reloaded.


                          I don't think I can use files in this case.
