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.

users:

LOAD*INLINE [

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 :

users:

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 ....

Thanks

Neale.

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?. =\
