Locate the log files for ODBC connectors

The ODBC connectors' log files are located at the following locations for Qlik Sense and QlikView.

  • Qlik Sense: {ProgramData}\Qlik\Custom Data\QvOdbcConnectorPackage\Log
  • QlikView: {ProgramData}\QlikTech\Custom Data\QvOdbcConnectorPackage\Log

Where {ProgramData} is %ALLUSERSPROFILE%.

By default, the log file reports only errors. The amount of information included in the log file can be changed by editing the CONFIG file QvOdbcConnectorPackage.exe.config located at:

  • Qlik Sense Enterprise: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Qlik\Custom Data\QvOdbcConnectorPackage
  • Qlik Sense Desktop: C:\Users\user-name\AppData\Local\Programs\Common Files\Qlik\Custom Data\QvOdbcConnectorPackage
  • QlikView: C:\Program Files\Common Files\QlikTech\Custom Data\QvOdbcConnectorPackage

Edit the LoggingLevel section in the QvOdbcConnectorPackage.exe.config file:

<setting name="LoggingLevel" serializeAs="String"> <value>ERROR</value> </setting>

The <value> can be changed from ERROR to one of the following:

  • ALL
  • DEBUG
  • INFO
  • WARN
  • FATAL
  • OFF
