Migrating report templates from older versions of Qlik NPrinting

Before you upgrade to a new version of Qlik NPrinting, you should export your projects so they can be imported into your new environment. The following versions of Qlik NPrinting can export project files (nsq) as zip files:.

  • Qlik NPrinting 15.6.0.0 and higher
  • Qlik NPrinting 16.0.0.0 and higher

In Qlik NPrinting Designer 17.0.0.2 or higher, you can import report templates from exported zip files.

Note: This process is for migrating report templates from an old version of Qlik NPrinting to a new one. To move reports between different environments using the same version of Qlik NPrinting, see: Moving reports between environments.

Exporting Qlik NPrinting projects

Do the following:

  1. In a Qlik NPrinting Designer from version 15.6.0.0 to all versions of 16, open the project file (nsq) that you want to export.
  2. Click the Tools tab.
  3. Click Export Project in the Tools group.
  4. Choose a file name and destination. You can either type this or click ... to browse.
  5. Click OK.

You now have a zip file saved to your computer.

Importing into report templates

Note:

Report templates can only be imported one at a time.

Do the following:

  1. Create a new report in Qlik NPrinting 17.0.0.2 or higher.
  2. Click Edit template to open the Template Editor.
  3. Click Import Report.
  4. Navigate through your folders until you find the zip file.
  5. Select the file and click Open.
  6. Select the report you want to import from the list.
  7. Click OK.

The report template will be imported and QlikView and Qlik Sense objects will be added to the tree view.
