Loading Excel and ODBC data into qlik sense

I have created an APP and created an ODBC connection, pasted an SQL script into the data load editor and all works fine.

I then created a link to an Excel file and tried to load that data into the same APP and I get the error

Data has not been loaded. Please correct the error and try loading again.
App successfully saved.
I then created a new app and loaded the excel data successfully.
Can anyone help me identify the problem.
The complete script in the data load editor is  for the ODBC

Re: Loading Excel and ODBC data into qlik sense

Are You not missing a ";" after "(ooxml, embedded labels, table is Sheet1)"?

Eg, row ought to read;

(ooxml, embedded labels, table is Sheet1);

And shouldn't the load statement also be preceded by a table name, eg;

Re: Loading Excel and ODBC data into qlik sense

also missing a ; at the end of the ODBC script.

I think the ODBC script requires SQL before the SELECT


LIB CONNECT TO 'Bistrack';

year(fy.Enddate) 'FinancialYear',


where sa3.financialyearid >= 6 -- >=2014;
