I have a load script with ApplyMap function which I don't understand:
Code as SalesPersonId,
Name as SalesPersonName
ApplyMap('SalesPerson',"Salesperson Code",'') as Salesperson_Name,
In the ApplyMap function, I know 'SalesPerson' is the name of the map table above. But what I don't understand is, there's no field named "Salesperson Code" in the map table. Why can this script work?
Thanks in advance!
Go to Solution.
on the Applymap(), following the description here: https://help.qlik.com/en-US/sense/June2018/Subsystems/Hub/Content/Scripting/MappingFunctions/ApplyMa...
you don't need to have your "Salesperson Code" field named the same on the Mapping table.
you just have "Salesperson Code" field on your Customer table which is sufficient.
so the applymap with "Salesperson Code" will look at the "SalesPersonId" on the mapping table, values should be the same on both fields, it is the only condition
In mapping load is important the fields's order.
First Field is the key and second field is the description, ever.
