Help needed with installing ACT reader up to V20

Hi Forum,

 

My name is Martijn Wanders and I'm a Qlik BI Consultant. For a customer a need to connect his ACT software to use the data for dashboarding purposes. I can create ODBC connection within Qlik.

 

If I search on the internet a see that I have to use the ACT reader utility. There are to different types as I read on page https://help.act.com/hc/en-us/articles/360024246694:

- ActReader up to v20.1.zip

- ActReader v21 and above.zip

 

My costumer use ACT premium version 20.1.120.0 update 8. So I have to use ActReader up to v20.1.zip. I cannot find this zipfile.

 

Where can I find this?

 

Kind regards

 

Martijn Wanders

Hi Inge,

 

Thank you for your help and I have a connection now. I get multiple table with the same names. Does ACT has a button to see the field- and table name? Or does ACT has a document?

 

Thank you for your reply.

Hi Inge,

 

A while ago I asked you a question. Do you have time to look at that? I shall save lot of time with searching the right tables. 

 

Thank you!

Please use the English language for this forum, but I am happy to help anyway.

So, you are looking for documentation on the database structure?

Act-Reader-Utility-Database-Report-Documentation 

Btw if you are using v21 you will need this actreader: How-To-Create-An-ODBC-Connection-For-Use-With-The-ACT-Reader-Utility

Hi Inge,

 

My apology for the Dutch translated questions. I shall use English from now on.

 

Yes, that is what I'm looking for and thank you for that. Have a nice weekend!
