File Type


File Type

On the File Type tab, the type of the current distributed document can be configured.

Note: Distribution of a PDF to a QlikView Server is not allowed.

Output Document Type

Select one of the following options:

  • QlikView Document, meaning that the document is distributed as a QlikView document.
  • PDF Report from Source Document, meaning that the document is distributed as a PDF report from the source document. To get a report as basis for the PDF report, select a QlikView report in the drop-down list and click the Open Document button. Note that the drop-down list is not populated with available reports until the document is opened. A special license is required to distribute the document as a PDF report.
  • Note: Using this function, that is, clicking the Open Document button or the ... button (if available), might be time consuming; therefore, it is done as an explicit command.
