Load Script loading duplicate records

Greetings,

Can anyone tell me why this load script is loading duplicate records - like thousands of them? My table only has 7,444 records, but Qlik is loading over 800K records. Obviously this is messing up one of my tables when I select a specific item in a filter, and it gives me multiple results that are all duplicates.

Re: Load Script loading duplicate records

Hi, subfield without a 3rd parameter creates a duplicate record for each value it splits.

In explame: SubField(RC_LIST,'|') -> If there are 4 '|' it will create 5 records, one for each splitted value.

And if you have many of this Sufbfield without a 3rd parameter it creates a cartesian produt of all possible duplicates.

Re: Load Script loading duplicate records

Thanks, I was not aware of this issue. I added another parameter and it solved my issue.
