Cannot find Direct Query option in the Qlik Sense trial version

I am trying the Qlik Sense Cloud and Desktop versions. I found the documentation and some videos showing how to make direct queries. However, I do not find them in my trial versions. Does anybody know if it is because of the trial version or is there some update and Qlik moved this feature somewhere else?

Hi @Farkhod The ODBC connection used from the data gateway doesn't support Direct Query. It is listed under the limitations:

Hi @Vinay_B ,

Thank you for your answer. I  am using an ODBC connection (Exasol Database). I loaded the data successfully but there is no Direct Query button. Do you think it is because of the ODBC connection?
