Re: Not able to create QVD files

Aehman, Thanks for the Kind response.

I tried Store [Product Dim] into lib://QVDs Files/Product.qvd;


The cause of the error which i have identified from my end are below things

1.) what ever the path i'm giving in the lib: ( im trying to give my OS path in the lib )

I'm trying to give it after lib.

2.) what ever the connection i have created in the script load editor giving an extra name to the folder

i created (QVD Files) as a folder connection its giving as QVD Files (qlik-sense_administrator)

but I'm using in my lib as lib://QVD Files/Product.qvd


Below is the working one.


Store [Product Dim] into 'lib://QVD Files (qlik-sense_administrator)/ProductDim.qvd';
