How to get the field value, that starts with a space?

Hello!

     I have values in my database, that starts with a space, like " Pepsi"," Mirinda".

Then i load them in QlikView, the first space character disappears.

How i can load them in QlikView and "save" first space character?

Best regards,

Alexandrov Anton

Verbatim

Normally all field values are automatically stripped of leading and trailing blanks (ASCII 32) before being loaded into the QlikView  database. Setting this variable to 1 suspends the stripping of blanks. Tab (ASCII 9) and hard space (ANSI 160) are never stripped.

Syntax:

Verbatim 

Example:

set Verbatim = 1;             // in the script

you could also concatenate a dummy symbol in front and/or after your fieldvalue at SQL database level and remove this symbol(s) later...

Verbatim = 1 works for all fields as long as it is activated. This can be a feature or a problem... it depends.
