Connecting through QlikView
Data stored in a WebI report can easily be pulled in to QlikView using UniverseBridge.
Navigate to UniverseBridge
Log in to SAP BusinessObjects
Select a Document
After logging in you will be taken to the 'Select a Document' tab. Select the document containing the data to be pulled in to QlikView.
Choose a data provider
If there is more than one data provider available, select one.
If the "Allow Users to Selectively Refresh" is enabled on the Admin page, a check box will also be available to allow the user to refresh the document. See Custom Configuration for more information.
Selet 'Get CSV Data'
After clicking the 'Get CSV Data' button, UniverseBridge will open a new browser window that will retrieve results from SAP BusinessObjects. Copy the URL for this new window to be used in QlikView.
Load CSV Data into QlikView
Open QlikView and use the script editor to add 'Web Files' data. Past the URL generated by UniverseBridge to retrieve CSV data into the 'Web Files' wizard.
Click Finish and Reload.
NOTE: Use "MSQ" Quoting whenever possible. This is especially important when there are special characters in the data.
