Re: Store Qvd

It is  the relative path which is used to store the QVD.


Relative path indicates the directory of data source where qlikview application are saved.

Relative path means, you need to give the path based on the current path,

Absolute path.

Absolute path is the actual path of the data file in your harddisk.

if you choose absolute path (uncheck the relative path) then you can observe the path of the file

it will come something like  E:\QlikView\RF\codiciw13.xlsx

More details available in the below link with example.

Re: Store Qvd

You can create a variable and give the  variable in script. Eg. vPath=C:\Users\ABC\Desktop\Docs

Use this variable STORE Orders  into $(vPath)\XYZ.qvd(qvd);

or without variable:

STORE Orders  into C:\Users\ABC\Desktop\Docs\XYZ.qvd(qvd);
