You can try to set the Link To property using the expression <%FilePath%>. This will allow you to open the document right from qListView, without being redirected to another page.

Thank you for your response. I have tried using the expression <%FilePath%> in the display fields "Link to" property. But it did not work. Can you please quote me an example for it.

Thank you for trying it for me. I am using some pdf, excel, doc, docx. I am getting these libraries from different site cllections. I used <%FilePath%>. in the name column , whenever I click on the Name column it takes me to the home page but not to the source document. I tried this even in the same site collection with different document libraries. I am using Explict option in display properties window. Is there any issue with it. Please let me know your ideas on it.

Here is an example of qListView configured to a document library "Shared Documents", with the "Name" field configured to open the documents using Link To.
<List SiteUrl="http://win2k8-yl:18150/subsite" ListName="Shared Documents" />
<Field Name="Name" LinkTo="<%FilePath%>"/>
<Field Name="Title" GroupExpanded="false" />
<Field Name="ID" />
<Field Name="Created" />
You can find details about this in our help document, under the qListView -> Link To section.
Please let us know your SharePoint and Quest Web Parts version in case you cannot make this work.

Hello Yuan Liang,
Thank you for the reply. I have tried the above way for a single list. It works fine. I am trying to do it on a Roll up of qlistview web part but it does not work out. Please find the configuartion below for a roll up.
<List SiteUrl="http://abc.com/mkt/us/busseg/gfs/pricing/SitePages/Home.aspx" ListName="xyz" />
<List SiteUrl="http://abc.com/mkt/can/busseg/gfs/pricing/SitePages/Home.aspx" ListName="xyz" />
<List SiteUrl="http://abc.com/mkt/lon/busseg/gfs/pricing/SitePages/Home.aspx" ListName="xyz" />
<List SiteUrl="http://abc.com/mkt/wrs/busseg/gfs/pricing/SitePages/Home.aspx" ListName="xyz" />
<Field Name="Type" GroupExpanded="false" />
<Field Name="Name" GroupExpanded="false" LinkTo="<%FilePath%>" />
<Field Name="Modified" />
Kindly let me know if we have to do any other setting for it. We are on sharepoint 2010 and Quest 5.7 with hot fix of "Explicit" option quoted above for the List view threshold value.

Your configuration looks correct, there isn't any other setting that needs to be changed. I tested qListView configured to multiple document libraries (with .docx, pdf, xls, jpg, xml files) and Link To is working is working fine in a 5.7 SP2010 environment.
What is the type of your document, and what kind of behavior do you see? Is the link not working at all, or are you being taken to another page? Also what is your IE version?
