errors with dataload

Hi everyone, I do know if my last post went thorugh so I will try again,

I am new to Qliksense, but something strange is happening.  I am using the quick load of data successfully, but when I try to make some modifications to the data, I am erroring out.  I realize this could be a very easy fix, but can someone give me a direction?

My code is this:

LOAD

    SITE,

    WEEK_ENDING_DATE,

    Period,

    "WEEK",

    No_Complaints,

    No_Ship,

    GOAL,

    CPM,

    NOTES,

   

   

    Date(monthstart([WEEK_ENDING_DATE]), 'YYYY/MM') as CREATION_Month;

SQL SELECT *

FROM [lib://Automation/QUALITY_SCORECARD_DATA.xlsx]

(ooxml, embedded labels, table is Sheet1);

this is the error, it only happens when I start to play around with the script.  Any Ideas?

There is no open data connection. Missing or failed "CONNECT" statement.

The error occurred here:

SQL SELECT *
FROM [lib://Automation/QUALITY_SCORECARD_DATA.xlsx]
(ooxml, embedded labels, table is Sheet1)

Re: errors with dataload

Hi,

When you are loading data from Excel file there is no need of SQL SELECT, try below script.

LOAD

    SITE,

    WEEK_ENDING_DATE,

    Period,

    "WEEK",

    No_Complaints,

    No_Ship,

    GOAL,

    CPM,

    NOTES,

    Date(monthstart([WEEK_ENDING_DATE]), 'YYYY/MM') as CREATION_Month

FROM [lib://Automation/QUALITY_SCORECARD_DATA.xlsx]

(ooxml, embedded labels, table is Sheet1);

If you are loading data from database then you need to use SQL SELECT like below

TableName:

SELECT

*

FROM TableName;

Hope this helps you.

Jagan.

Re: errors with dataload

It is very useful suggestion. I have one more question that when I connect to the Salesforce for Incremental load I got same error.

Can u plz suggest me.

Set vQVDPath =  [lib://qvd2/table2.qvd]; //****************  Enter Location to save QVDs in the path should end it back slash.  For example: C:\MyQVDs\

                                                                                                              //                                         For realtive paths are also possible.  For example   QVDs\  will put the QVDs in a subfolder from where the QVW is saved.

//Set the variables so the last time of script execution is known

SET vLastExecTime          = 0; // resetting vLastExecTime

LET vLastExecTime          = timestamp(if(isnull(QvdCreateTime('$(vQVDPath)ReloadHistory.QVD')), 0, ConvertToLocalTime(QvdCreateTime('$(vQVDPath)ReloadHistory.QVD'), 'GMT', 1)), 'YYYY-MM-DD hh:mm:ss');

LET vExecTime                  = timestamp(UTC(), 'YYYY-MM-DD hh:mm:ss');

LET vTodaysDate     = today();

//For the 1st reload, this section will be skipped.

LET FirstReload = isnull(QvdCreateTime('$(vQVDPath)ReloadHistory.QVD'));

if Not $(FirstReload) then

// Read Reload History Data

ReloadHistory:

Load

No,

[Last Reload Ended],

[Reload Started]

end if

ReloadHistory:

LOAD

'$(vExecTime)' as [Reload Started]

                STORE * FROM ReloadHistory INTO $(vQVDPath)ReloadHistory.qvd;

For i = 0 to (NoOfRows('TablesList')-1);

Let varTableName = Peek('TableName',$(i), 'TablesList');

// Load Tables

$(varTableName)_SQL:

WHERE NOT EXISTS(id);   // *************************************** Change "Id" to the primary key for your tables (note all your tables must use the same name for the primary key for this script to work.

               

end if

// If table exists then proceed to the next step

                if NoOfRows('$(varTableName)_SQL') > 0 then

STORE $(varTableName)_SQL INTO $(vQVDPath)$(varTableName)_SQL.qvd;

DROP TABLE $(varTableName)_SQL;

End if

Next;

Drop Table TablesList;
