If you have been working with Qlik for a bit I am sure you have heard of QVDs. If you have been working with Qlik a while hopefully you have heard of optimized QVD loads and non-optimized QVD loads. Either way, hopefully I can shed some of the mystery around QVDs and these two loads.
I truly wonder how much time collectively the Qlik Community has spent troubleshooting Section Access...
Have you ever wanted to load dollar sign expansion into a field or variable? One common use case is storing expressions within a metadata table, which may contain a variable in the expression. Have you needed to leverage a square bracket in an Inline Load? Maybe have had to use a quote in a variable or field value. Here is how you can get around that.
I want to start this artcile off by mentioning that this only works for flat json, meaning non-nested json hierarchies. It is possible to leverage this for nested json but takes a bit more elbow grease and knowledge of the schema. Since my intention is to keep these posts brief, I’ll save that for a more in-depth stand […]
If you didn’t know, reload logs reside in the following folders: C:\ProgramData\Qlik\Sense\Log\Script On the Qlik Engine that the application reloaded on. ~\QlikShare\ArchivedLogs\%Server_Name%\Script Log files have the following naming convention: %app_guid%.%reload_time%.%unknown% * I haven’t been able to determine the third parameter yet. Will update this post if I ever do. If you k...
Each QVD contains an XML header which contains metadata about that QVD. It is very common to leverage this to make a QVD Catalog dashboard to provide some overarching insight into all of the QVDs in your environment. To see, just select a QVD in a folder connection and change the File format from QVD […]
Here is a super quick tip. If you ever need to convert month names or prefixes to numbers or dates you can leverage the default variables and Subfield to quick create a mapping table to later use with an ApplyMap. and boom: Source
There is a feature when doing a for each loop called FileList. It’s a way to get a list of files in a directory that matches a wildcard path. Since this is a parameter of the for each statement and not a function, there is not a lot of information on it. If you have kept […]
After working with Qlik for a long time, you’ll soon find out that restarting the services can solve a lot of unexpected behaviors and is a good starting point for environment bugs. If you’re like me it can take a while to remember the order they should be done in. So here is the list […]
This is a very neat option for loops. If you need to loop through a list of field values you can use the FieldValueList mask. This could replace using the combination of NoOfRows and Peek. That is assuming you only need to loop through the distinct list of values. Script Result Notice the difference how the two options handle the […]
