Binary load failure in Qliksense?

Hi,

Just started dabbling with qliksense.

The binary reload fails for the following statement in the script editor:

Binary [My app.qvw];

exit script;

This is the error I get:

Started loading data

BINARY statment only takes a lib:// path in the script mode Binary [My app.qvw]

Data load failed

I refered the following thread,wasn't very helpful

Hi! Follow the steps to create a connection and do a binary load.

1- Go to Create new connection, and than to Folder;

Step1.jpg

- Go to the folder that your qvw is located, and give a name to the connection. This name you'll use on your binary load.

3 - Do your binary load with the following sintax, using the connection name that you've created before.

Hope it helps.

Hi!

To do a binary load, you need first to create a Folder Connection pointing to the folder that your qvw is located.

Than you can do

Binary [lib://YourFolderConnectionName/My app.qvw];

Thanks Gabriella for the quick response

It still fails for the following statement

Binary [lib://N:\Qliksense\ Activity Folder structure\DashBoards\My App.qvw];

exit script;

let say the source qvw is located in the following location

N:\Qliksense\ Activity Folder structure\DashBoards

Source qvw name:My App.qvw

Then I also created a Qliksense document in the same folder i.e. in

N:\Qliksense\ Activity Folder structure\DashBoards

So now both the source document(qvw) and qliksense(qvf) are in the same folder.

What should the syntax  be  for binary reload ?

Swarup - you can also take a look at this video:

Qlik Sense Desktop - Loading Data from QlikView Applications (video)

and many others to learn more: New to Qlik Sense Videos

A note just to make sure, make sure the Binary load statement is the first statement in the script editor.

Qlik Sense by default uses Standard Mode to load data - which means it needs the LIB syntax.

(If you want to use drive letter and folder directory paths - you must use Legacy Mode.

You can learn more here: but we recommend you keep it at Standard mode)
