Selecting certain columns from a table using data from another table in Data load Editor


Need some help in creating a dynamic data load editor script that pulls fields depending on names coming from another table.

For example:

Table 1 has 10 Columns with full data for each column - A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J

Table 2 will be a table that is updated periodically with column names only, no data.

Maybe today it contains - A, C, D

So Today if i ran the data refresh in my Qlik Application the data loaded into the app for that data set would only contain those 3 columns.

Say next week, we update Table 2 to A,B, D,F   -- Then after the data reload happens to the qlik app it would then contain those 4 columns instead.

In theory it would look something like this...


column names from table 2

FROM "Table 1.qvd"

Can anyone help me with the syntax here or let me know if this is possible...Thanks!
