Which is the plus of QlikView Expressor in respect to QlikView itself?

Hi all,

i am interested in understanding the plus that expressor would give to QlikView,

in order to see if it's worth or not learning it. At the moment i've just learnt

few things like how to read a file and write it as qvx file in order to read it in QlikView,

use some expression to manipulate data,etc.,but i don't see at the moment anything that

QlikView itself can't do. Maybe it's something related with moving huge files from a folder

on a machine to another place on another server,i don't know,but if you know anything

about this topic,please let me know.
