No, variables wont come through when you do a binary load.

You can use the below solutions instead to ge the variables from one document to another.

you can load variables into a table in the source document and then retrieve them from the table (using peek()) in the target document.

You could use an include file to hold the variable definitions and then call the include file in both QVWS.

Binary load just loads the data nothing else.

If you want to reuse variables you should consider loading them from an Excel Sheet.


This is from Qlik help

The binary statement is used for loading the data from another QlikView document, including section access data. It does not load the layout information or variables. Only one binary statement is allowed in the script and it can only be put as the first statement of a script.
