Binary Load if qvf file changes

Hi Qlikers,

I'm loading a big set into a Qlik Sense app that I'm calling 'Archive'. In an other app I'm loading this Archive using BINARY load and then my fresh data.

I'm wondering if there is a way to load my archive only if it has been modified. Is there a statement that allows to check if the date of the Archive has changed?

Thanks for your help

Re: Binary Load if qvf file changes

Hi Xavier,

Binary load statement has to be the first statement in the script and hence you will not be able to have an if condition before the binary statement.

But as a work around I would suggest you to have the login in a separate qvf file to load the data only if modified and use that file as the binary load.

Thanks,

Sangram Reddy.
