QLIK SENSE CLOUD - QVD File Store in Attached Files folder

Hi QLIK Sense Cloud Community,

I am trying to learn how to create/save data into DVD files. Am using the following script to generate some basic data to store in the users file QVD.



userid, name

1, Joe

2, Mark

3, Tim


STORE users INTO [lib://AttachedFiles/users.qvd(QVD)]

Am using the following script to retrieve the data and check its working :


LOAD * FROM [lib://AttachedFiles/users.qvd(QVD)];

However I get the error :

The following error occurred:

Cannot open file: 'lib://AttachedFiles/users.qvd(QVD)'

The error occurred here:

users: LOAD * FROM [lib://AttachedFiles/users.qvd(QVD)]

I can't see the file in the AttachedFiles directory so Im guessing (?) thats the problem - however I dont get any error when I run the STORE command to generate the file ?

I am using the CLOUD version not desk top.

Any help much appreciated ....

Hi, I believe you already know, but for future people, your may find your answer in this threads:

Incremental Loading in Cloud

Storing to a qvd

Until now, the STORE command does not work with qlik cloud... =/


Yes it does work with qlik cloud!

You should write

STORE users INTO [lib://AttachedFiles/users.qvd] (qvd)

instead of

STORE users INTO [lib://AttachedFiles/users.qvd(QVD)]

Nice, thanks!

It works with Attached Files, but still not work with a common space for all apps like "My personal data files", right?. =\
