Open Internet Files or Open QlikView Document

This dialog appears when clicking on one of the buttons QlikView File... or Table Files... in the Data page of the Tool Pane in the Edit Script dialog - provided that the Use FTP check box is marked. Depending on which button was used to open it, the dialog is called Open QlikView Document or Open Internet Files, but the functionality is the same. This dialog can also be used to open QlikView documents. This is done by choosing Open FTP from the File menu.

Select the server containing the file(s) that should be opened in the drop-down list box. If the server is not in the list (or if there is no list), enter a server name, then click Connect.
