So I’m back …

I haven’t written to this blog for almost three months now.

Two big changes has happened in my life in the meantime:

  • I have become a daddy
  • I have changed my profession

Talking about being a father now would be nice but does not really fit into the topics of this blog. But talking about my new job really does!
I am proud to announce that I have joined QlikTech as an employee in Nov 2010. I am working now as a PreSales Consultant at QlikTech. This brings me to the most important point related to this blog:

I can now concentrate on Business Intelligence and QlikView by 100%. Doing so I will definitely continue to write articles on But in comparison to the past I will try to broaden the topics I write about a little bit.

My personal goal is to write about QlikView and related technologies/concepts which are often used when working on Business Intelligence projects with QlikView.

So at the moment I have the following topic map in my mind:

  • QlikView, QlikView, QlikView
  • QlikView Publisher/Server
  • Publishing more tools for the daily work with QlikView like the “Nested if-generator tool”, which is used by visitors of more than 100-times used a day (!!!!)
  • QlikView APIs
  • Related web technologies (At least since introduction of extension in QV know-how of web-related technologies become more and more important for QV-developers!)
  • QlikView related scripting- and programming-languages (like SQL, VBScript, JavaScript, C#)
  • Operating systems both on client and server side

So stay tuned and subscribe to the RSS-feed or just drop me some lines which article you would like to read here as soon as possible!

    Hallo nach Österreich,

    ich habe einen Kommentar zu QlikView und Outook gefunden, daher stelle ich einfach mal die Frage:

    Kann ich auf die Mails (in meinem Postfach oder in einer eigenen PST-Datei) zugreifen? Wenn ja, wie??
    Ich will eingehende Mails (Fehlermeldungen) nach einem Mailing auswerten.
    Leider steht in der Absenderzeitle immer “Postmaster” aber nie die Domaine. Dies brauche ich für den Abgleich,
    welche Mailadressen sich nach dem letzten Newsletter geändert haben. Daher die Frage.
    Leider sind es so viele, dass ich sie nicht alle zeitnahe “abtelefonieren” kann, daher will ich sie automatisiert selektieren. Ich bin jedoch kein Programmierer, sondern “nur” Vertriebler, also bitte nciht zu technisch antworten. Habe schon eigene QV-Auswertungen erstellt, aber das mit der Datenquelle anbinden ist nicht immer einfach. :-)

    Kann ich mit ienr Antwort an die oben angegebene Mailadresse rechen? Wäre klasse. Danke im Voraus.

    Viele Grüße aus Deutschland

      I have answered to your eMail-address.
      Please use only english for commeting articles here … since I have switched the main language of this blog to english.

      The short answer to your question:

      Yes, it is possible to connect to Outlook to read eMails/contacts in two ways:

      – Read mails via macro
      – Create an OLEDB-connection string to connect to Outlook and/or Exchange and use a standard-load-script to read your messages/contacts/appointments …

      Hope this helps …

      Best regards
