PowerPoint reports

Qlik NPrinting supports exporting QlikView and Qlik Sense data to PowerPoint slides. PowerPoint slides are automatically updated when a report is generated. Data is filtered according to recipient, report, and task. Only filtered data is saved in generated reports.

Feature overview

PowerPoint report templates

Create reports and report templates, where you embed QlikView objects and variables. You can preview the result and make changes before saving.

Page feature in report templates

Use the page feature to create separate slides in PowerPoint for each field value. You can have more than one page field in a presentation, but on separate slides.

Individual slides for multiple field values

Create a PowerPoint slide for every combination of values from two or more fields. The first steps are taken in QlikView. You can rearrange the order of the generated slides.

Native tables and charts

Embed QlikView tables and columns in your PowerPoint report templates and apply new styling. Create a PowerPoint chart using native QlikView tables. You can create new charts, or replicate QlikView ones, by adding column tags as the chart data source in the Table node.


Excel worksheets in PowerPoint report templates

You cannot embed an Excel worksheet in a PowerPoint report template. This will cause Qlik NPrinting Designer to crash. You can insert the worksheet without using the Qlik NPrinting Designer.

New template

Create a .pptx file in PowerPoint without using the Qlik NPrinting Designer. Insert the worksheet and save the .pptx. Then use the .pptx file as a report template.

Existing template

If you have already created the PowerPoint template, export it, open the .zip file generated by Qlik NPrinting and double-click the .pptx file inside. Insert the Excel worksheet, save the resulting PowerPoint and overwrite the exitingQlik NPrinting template by uploading the updated .zip.
