Loading QVD file from shared drive to Qlik Sense desktop

As of now our user is loading ‘stored QVD data’ via mapping the shared drive (Ex: T:\QVD\abc.qvd). Here our T drive is shared drive (Ex: \\511-pp401-t-001\QVD\abc.qvd). Is it possible to call shared drive name instead of calling local desktop drive?

Thanks for your feedback.

Re: Loading QVD file from shared drive to Qlik Sense desktop

Hi Murali - yes it is possible.

Create a Folder connection and assign the typical shared drive UNC type path such as:

\\MYBOOKLIVE\Public\

You need to click in the location

You will then reference the path using the Lib syntax such as:

....FROM 'lib://shared_folder/myfile.qvd'

Please let us if this is what you are after, by marking the reply as correct or helpful so that our team knows that the questions has been answered.

Yes this is possible.

Once you have created your data connections, you can name them as it is convenient for you.

See in details Michaels reply.
