Adding new .xlsx to current data in Qlik Sense

Hi All,

I have loaded a huge amount of data from two files: file1, file2 in Qlik Sense and created a data model.

I want to add new data to this daily from file3, file4 in another folder on my desktop. I don't want to load file1, file2 again as it takes a lot of time.

Can anyone please guide me?

Re: Adding new .xlsx to current data in Qlik Sense

You can try using a partial load: Add ‒ Qlik Sense

But perhaps a better idea is to load the data each day and then store the resulting table into a qvd. The next day you load the data from the qvd (very fast) and append the data from the new day. And again store the resulting table to the qvd again. This is called incremental loading.

Search this site for "incremental load" and "partial reload"

Re: Adding new .xlsx to current data in Qlik Sense

Hi Gysbert,

I read articles on incremental data load, but being new to Qlik Sense am finding it difficult to implement it in my script. Can you help me with the script if I share my current script with you along with the folder location?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Adding new .xlsx to current data in Qlik Sense

Probably. Post your script and we'll have a look.

Re: Adding new .xlsx to current data in Qlik Sense

Thanks a lot. That would be a great help.

The current data is already loaded using the script below via a connection to a folder. The new data is present in another folder.

The script is in three sections:

  • Main
  • Auto-Generated Section
  • Section-2

Re: Adding new .xlsx to current data in Qlik Sense

And should new data be added to all tables from the auto-generated section? Or is there only new data for some of the tables?

Re: Adding new .xlsx to current data in Qlik Sense

It is required for all the tables.

Re: Adding new .xlsx to current data in Qlik Sense

Ok after the initial reload add the word ADD in front of LOAD for each load block. You'll have to unlock the auto-generated section first before you can make changes to it. Then execute a partial reload. See here for how to do that: Qlik Sense Partial Reload for v2.0.x, v2.1.1, v3.x
