Save a Current Selection to a QVD

Hi !

There's any way, but macro, that take a selection and save as qvd?

Could be an extension, method, anything.

I saw this extension to export to a Excel, But i can select the destination, so its not useful to me.

Thanks

Re: Save a Current Selection to a QVD

I am not aware of an option to do this.  You can save to a QVD in the load script.  But the only option in the app for a user is to export to excel or pdf.

There might be an extension out there.

Hi Mark,

I can save a qvd in the load script, but as far as i know, not the current selection. And i need to select some fields and then save it on qvd

Re: Save a Current Selection to a QVD

Like I said I don't know how you could do that.  You want to save it from the app after the user makes selections.  If I understand you correctly. 

There might be an extension out there that would allow you add a button to your app to export the data.  But I am not aware of anything.

If you don't mind me asking.  What is the reason that you want to be able to do this?  What are you trying to do?

Re: Save a Current Selection to a QVD

Well, long history, but the short version:

My boss want to get some analisys from qlik sense and set some strutions.

Ex:

If my table are get this:

Input:

Id          Name       Problem              Area

13477     Motor     Out of Stock     Choose Area

Output:

  Id          Name       Problem              Area

13477     Motor     Out of Stock     Comercial

Where Area will be choose after QVD load

Then i need to reload to save this new information on my qvd, to other areas could see

I dont agree, Qlik Sense is a visualization tool, but i'm not in charge lol.

Hi Fernando,

Thank you for your time. About macro, i don't need to change legacy mode to use? Because this will comprimise my security
