Loading data from ftp file..

In QlikCoud i want to add data from  csv file on the ftp server.

My script:


LOAD [kategoria],






FROM [ftp://qlik%3aPassWorD%40'my.server.pl/_raport_id_kat.csv]

(txt, codepage is 1250, embedded labels, delimiter is ';', msq);

I still get an error:

Wystąpił następujący błąd:

This statement only works with lib:// paths in this script mode

Thanks for Your help.

Re: Loading data from ftp file..

The script mode can be changed in Desktop/Enterprise but not in Cloud.

Please look in for more info.

Help text from link above;

Disabling standard mode

You can disable standard mode, or in other words, set legacy mode, in order to reuse QlikView load scripts that refer to absolute or relative file paths as well as library connections.

Disabling standard mode can create a security risk by exposing the file system.

You cannot disable standard mode in Qlik Sense Cloud.

Qlik Sense

For Qlik Sense, standard mode can be disabled in QMC using the Standard mode property.

See: Managing a Qlik Sense site: Editing engine

Qlik Sense Desktop

In Qlik Sense Desktop, you can set standard/legacy mode in Settings.ini.

Do the following:

  1. Open C:\Users\{user}\Documents\Qlik\Sense\Settings.ini in a text editor.
  2. Change StandardReload=1 to StandardReload=0.
  3. Save the file and start Qlik Sense Desktop, which will run in legacy mode.

The available settings for StandardReload are:

  • 1 (standard mode)
  • 0 (legacy mode)

Re: Loading data from ftp file..

Hello Marcin,

I wanted to add some additional information, what Lucke has provided and as he stated ONLY works for Qlik Sense Enterprise or Desktop not Qlik Sense Cloud. However, I have come up with a way to do something like this using the Qlik Sense REST Connector - which is available in Qlik Sense Cloud Business (subscription) - it is an experimental example that allows you to retrieve file data from dropbox as an example. Check out the post and video here:

In addition you can learn more about REST here:

You can mark multiple threads as HELPFUL if you feel additional info is useful to others.
