See thsi example to LOAD all excel & all sheets

Re: load these N no of xls files into Qlikview

If all the files having the same number of columns and having the same sheet name then you can simply load by * in file name

EMP_SAL:

load *

From

C\EMP_SAL\EMP_SAL_*.xls

DEPT_SAL:

load *

From

C\DEPT_SAL\DEPT_SAL_*.xls

For each group of files you can use:

FOR Each Dir in DirList ('$(Root)\'&'*.')

        FOR Each File in FileList ('$(Dir)'&'\EMP_SAL*.xlsx')

       EMP_SAL:

         LOAD

          .... fields

        FROM [$(File)] ....

       NEXT File

NEXT Dir

Hi,

You can simply write two load statements with wildcards in filename like below, don't make the script complicated by using For loops if you have only two file paths.

Data:

LOAD *

FROM

C:\EMP_SAL\*.xls;

CONCATENATE(Data)

LOAD *

FROM

C:\DEPT_SAL \*.xls;


Hope this helps you.

Jagan.
