In the application box I also placed EXCEL.EXE
In the filename box I placed something like to quickly try it:
"C:\Documents and Settings\User\Dashboard Example.xlsx"
I also tried the option with variable path name. For this I created three variables:
vPath = \\server\folder
vFile = File.xlsx
vPathFile = = '"' & vPath &vFile &'"'
In the filename box of the button I then placed the following text
Attached the quickly created version with above solution. Note the variable vPathFile is not really required but handy for traceability of what QlikView is doing.
I have also been able to pass through read only command, you need to place '/r' in the parameters input box. [Note: this command is not included in the attached qvw]
