Changing the source data

Hi ,how do update the data source with the current one ? Do we need to create a new apps for each new set of data?  Thanks

Hi, quick answer: you dont' need new apps for diffrent data sources, but there is also the option of doing that way.

If old data is in a source and new data has another source you can create qvds with old data to avoid the access to old  data connection and make a quicker reload:


Besides that you can set different data connections in the same script:

1- connect to one data source,

2- load data rom that data source

3- connect to other data source

4- load data from that other data source

Sometimes a new app is created when you want to split historical data and actual data,  in this case different apps are created. There is the option to use binary loads to join all data in one app, using another app as data source.
