Trigger Load based on Dates from Excel

Hi Team,

Customer has given me a file with YearMonth and Dates. The file has to check YearMonth and Dates and my Script Start  Loading the data 

Please check the attached. For example customer will place the files on 04/19/2021 in shared folder as attached file. 

Then the load starts by 04/19/2021 similarly every month customer will place the files. It has to check file Dates and start loading. Finally script only run as per attached files

Please let me know how I can achieve this

Regards,

Siva

For Example in the below Script. If Date is  4/19/2021 then start loading else it doesn't need to start

Load * Inline

[

YearMonth,Date
Apr-21 ,4/19/2021
May-21, 5/19/2021
Jun-21, 6/18/2021
Jul-21 ,7/18/2021

];

 

Then Start my Load Script

Load * from QVD;

HI @siva_boggarapu 

Are you want to find the trigger table has value or not? If there is value, need to load some qvd.. Is it right? 

If so, try like below

Trigger:
Load * Inline
[
YearMonth, Date
Apr-21, 4/19/2021
May-21, 5/19/2021
Jun-21, 6/18/2021
Jul-21, 7/18/2021
];

Let vMinDate = Peek('Date',0); // it will store the first value in the Date field i.e. 4/19/2021

If NoOfRows('Trigger') > 0 then

LOAD * from example.qvd;

ENDIF

Suppose, if you want to load from 19th Apr, then use this variable vMinDate in where condition.

Hope it helps

Thanks & Regards,

Hi Mayil Vahanan R,

Much appreciated your quick response. Yes, I got the solution almost as you posted in Community.

But I want check the date every month. How it is possible. For example May Month Load should run 5/19/2021 date. and skip april date ie 4/19/2021

Please could you let me know how can we achieve this?

Regards,

Siva

HI @siva_boggarapu 

If its always 19th Of every month, then try like this

Let vMinDate = MakeDate(Year(Today()), Month(Today()), 19);

Thanks & Regards,

Hi MayilVahanan,

No, the date would be Dynamic . How we  can get if Run the script in May ,Jun ,July

And It should not pick Previous dates and only get the current year and current month dates

Thanks,

Siva
