How to save multiple qvds into one qvd?

Hi there,

I have 10 qvd files. I need to make them as single qvd file. Could you please any one describe this?

Hi,

you can do something like:

ALL_QVD:

load null() as dummy autogenerate(0);

// this is needed for making the concat afterwards

for each qvd_file in filelist ('c:\your_qvd_dir\*.qvd')

     concatenate (ALL_QVD)

     load *

     from $(qvd_file) (qvd);

next qvd_file

drop field dummy;

store ALL_QVD into ALL_QVD.QVD;

Take a look on syntax because I don't have test it.

Hope that help!

Why do you need to build them into one? what's the problem on keeping them separated?

You Could simply say,

Test_QVD:

Load *

From ;

Store Test_QVD into [TEST\Final.QVD];

This should work.

Sridhar, that will only work if all qvd files have the same fields, if not you will end up having Test_QVD_1, Test_QVD_2, etc.

Andrea's answer is more generical in that regard.

Exactly, my solution will work when the field names are same in all QVD`s.


When siva.boggarapu said about concatenating all the QVD`s in to one QVD, I have assumed that he may have the same field names in all QVD`s.

Moreover if the Qvd`s has different field names, then my code will create a QVD only for the 1st loaded table and it will not create a QVD for subsequent loaded tables.

Apologies for my misunderstandings and i accept Andrea`s answer is more generical in that regard.

I use this solution more generally for TXT or XLS files. I just  propose it because  is , as you said, more generic.

In fact the Sridhar method is quite more efficent if the case of same fields.

Hello Danielato,

Could you please understand my requirement. I need to make them as single qvd file. Is it possible?

Load *from [..\Data Loader\Loader OverUnder\QVD\OverUnderFDUS2011.qvd](qvd);

Siva,

Shridar already answered you here. Your code, would look like

// This loads all files in one table

TempLoad:

LOAD *

FROM [..\Data Loader\Loader OverUnder\QVD\OverUnder*.qvd] (qvd);

// This stores all previous QVDs in one

STORE TempLoad INTO [..\Data Loader\Loader OverUnder\QVD\CompleteFile.qvd];

Credits to Shridar.

Hope that helps.

Hi,

if in the directory you have only the qvd that you mention you can do:

ALL_QVD:

load null() as dummy autogenerate(0);

// this is needed for making the concat afterwards

for each qvd_file in filelist ('..\Data Loader\Loader OverUnder\QVD\*.qvd')

     concatenate (ALL_QVD)

     load *

     from $(qvd_file) (qvd);

next qvd_file

drop field dummy;

store ALL_QVD into ALL_QVD.QVD;
