Examples

A set of examples that you can explore in order to learn how to use QlikView in various ways.

Recent Contains a list of recently opened documents and web pages. Just click on one of them to re-open. Right-click on a document to gain access to a menu with the following useful commands:
Open "document" Without Data
Opens the document but skips table and field data. A layout with all sheets and sheet objects in place but empty is opened. This feature can be useful e.g. for opening corrupted documents or for avoiding long waits when opening very large documents for a small change in the layout (of course the script needs to be re-run to re-populate the document after the changes). This is done with the command line switch nodata as well.
Open "document" and Reload Data
Opens the document and performs an immediate reload.
Browse Documents in Folder
Opens the folder containing the document in the list.
Add "document" to Favorites
Adds the document or web page to the Favorites list.
Remove "document" From This List
Removes the document from the list of recently used documents. The actual document file remains unchanged where it resides.
Favorites Contains a list of the documents and web pages previously added to the favorites list. Unlike the list of recently used documents the favorites list remains unchanged until explicitly adding or deleteing entries. Just click on a favorite document or page to re-open. Right-click on a document to gain access to a menu with the following useful commands:
Open "document" Without Data

This feature can be useful e.g. for opening corrupted documents or for avoiding long waits when opening very large documents for a small change in the layout (of course the script needs to be re-run to re-populate the document after the changes). This can also be accomplished with the command line switch nodata.
Open "document" and Reload Data

Browse Documents in Folder
Opens the folder containing the document in the list.
