Import File

Hello everyone!

I am in the process of learning how to work with the Qlik Deployment Framework, impressed with all its features, I realized it does not have a native function to Import Files, I mean text files with all its formatting flexibility, a function allowing us to consume the LOAD statement by issuing a single call to a function able to handle as many possibilities to load text files, so I decided to write the function ImportFile.

I enjoyed authoring it because of the challenge, allowing me to research the Qlik Community about authoring QDF functions, I was unable to find a procedure on how to achieve my goal, as a result I developed and tested the ImportFile function and wrote its documentation where I briefly explain:

  1. How to author functions for the Qlik Deployment Framework.
  2. How to Integrate them within the QDF.
  3. The ImportFile function itself.

 My experience was very rewarding, it gave me a lot of knowledge about the QDF and I am sharing the function here, with the document on authoring and integrating QDF functions plus the ImportFile features implemented.

 I hope you find it useful and feel free to ask any question regarding its features.

Cheers,

Arnaldo
