Connecting to a SQL Database

I have just installed QlikView X64 Personal Edition (trial version) on my laptop.  We are testing out this product for our company.  I am trying to find some documentation on how to start using this application.  I will need to connect to a SQL database for this testing.

Thanks in advance!

Re: Connecting to a SQL Database

You need to have an ODBC and a database user with read permissions, then you can use the connection wizard from the Script Editor of Qlikview Desktop to create the connection. You can encrypt the user and password.

Hope this helps, regards.
