Hello,

Yes, you need to write a macro. Look example in QlikView API guide - ActiveDocument.DynamicUpdateCommand.

I think you don't need to write macro anymore. Just create/add an action "Dynamic Update" and fill statement with something like this

UPDATE TestTable SET TestField = 'Test' WHERE TestField='abc';
UPDATE TestTable SET Discount = 123 WHERE TestField='Test';
UPDATE TestTable SET Discount = 123 WHERE UpdateTag=1;

Hi ghori.irf,

as far as I figured it out by now, dynamic update changes only the values in memory. As long as your application stays in memory, you should be fine. But you have to make sure, that your data is saved once in a while.

Currently I'm working on using an export action for that. The next reload has to check, if there are any previously exported files (xml, csv,...). You can try to combine this with an EDX-triggered reload.

Regards

Matthias
