How to load new data only, keeping history intact?

Hello Everyone,

Here is the deal. Every day there are new excel files generated that I need to load on my already existing analysis that contains the ata from all previous days of the year.

Is there a way that I can load only the new data every day, keeping the previously loaded intact?

Here is my current load:

LOAD

  Order as [%Key_Order]

FROM [lib://MyLib/Data\Orders\Orders*.xlsx]

(ooxml, embedded labels, table is Pag_1);

As you can see, my excel file name changes every day, that's why the load is from "Orders*.xlsx".

Thank you very much guys!

The solution is called "Incremental load" or "Delta load". The Qlik Component Library contains a routine for this:
