Slash Direction in Qlik Sense

Hi guys,

I am new to Qlik Sense and a little bit confused with the correct direction of the Slashs in Sense.

I am seeing all varations of slash directions in the scripts, but wondering what is really correct?

Sense:

lib://SAP_Data/Material.qvd <- just using slash

[lib://Global_Data/01_Data\table mapping.xlsx] <-  using Slashs and black slash

I have the feeling that lib needs slash and going forward it does not matter if slash or back slash is used?

Thanks for your help.

Re: Slash Direction in Qlik Sense

If you use the "Select Data to load" feature in the data load editor, and goes down subfolders of a folder connection each new level is limited by backslashes, ie:

FROM [lib://folder_data/daily\trf\all_your_bases.qvd]
(qvd);

That obviously works, that's how Sense generates it.

I have not tried but I think you can change the backslashes to forward slashes, and it will still work
