include statement

Hi, just wondering if there's a help menu similar to Qlikview for QlikSense.

I'm particularly interested in finding the correct "include" or "must_include" statement syntax/option to be used in QlikSense.

Thank you,

Anton

Re: include statement

Hi Anton - are you referring to some like this?:

at the moment there isn't - a menu like this in Qlik Sense.

Here is the direct answer in the help:

https://help.qlik.com/sense/en-US/online/#../Subsystems/WorkingWith/Content/Scripting/SystemVariable...

$(Include=lib:\\MyDataFiles\abc.txt); 

Note that by default the lib statement must be used to reference the Folder connections you setup in the Connection Dialog.

If you want to use drive letters and paths with the include statement - you need to disable Standard Mode:

For your reference there are intelli-sense auto-completion features - that activate when typing:

And there is the ability to turn on context sensitive help - which will turn the syntax into a hyperlink where it will you link you out to the help site:
