Can you use 'Order By' in a QVD Load?

Can you use 'Order By' in a QVD Load? It looks like my syntax is good but I get this error:

Garbage after statement

No you can't use Order By clause for qvd file. You can use for resident table only.

Eg:

Load A,B*C as E resident tab1 order by A;

Hi,

You can use order by only in Resident load only.  If you want to use order by then load QVD data into temporary table and then using resident load sort the data and then drop the temporary table.  Check the script below

TempTable:

LOAD

     *

FROM FileName.QVD (qvd);

Data:

LOAD

     *

RESIDENT TempTable

ORDER BY Field1, Field2;

DROP TABLE TempTable;

Hope this helps you.

Regards,

Jagan.

I did not realize this constraint on the ORDER BY clause: (described in Qlikview documentation) "This clause may only be used when the data source is a resident table."
