In our first video blog, we discuss how to gracefully pause and stop QlikView scripts, so that execution can be resumed later without existing script progress being lost!
I often found that when I would reload a QlikView application from my laptop, I would become tethered in place until the script finished. If I put my computer in Sleep mode, or disconnected it from the network (when the script required network access), the script would fail. Fortunately, I was able to win my freedom by implementing a simple trick, which I share in the following video:
Using this approach, you can safely put your computer into Sleep mode or disconnect from the network; when you wake it or reconnect to the network, the script can be un-paused and execution will resume normally! The supporting files used in the video are available for download here:
Please feel free to share in the comments section below your personal success stories using our approach! And, as always, happy Qliking!
