Hello,

It did not happen to me but I saw some cases which happened to my friends here.

In that case, it might be a bug or something after a certain amount of rows. You may try things like:

1. loading and writing it to a qvd immediately. Then try to read from qvd and see if anything changes.

2. Try to read from csv.

3. You may ask to technical support if nothing works. If you are in older version, it may have been fixed or something.

Hi Paul,

Qlikview display only the distinct rows after load .

Can you add the RowNo() function in your script to be certain that there are no "duplicate line".

A common issue with text files is special (and non-visible) characters causing Qlikview to think it has reached the end of the file. If the load is always ending at the same record, then this is probably the reason. Does the last record end part-written? Try making a copy of the text file, delete the final record it is loading and see if it loads more records.

Fixing it is more problematic but try the above first and let us know if it changes things.

Thank you, I think that might be the case.  Is there a quick way to work out which was the last record?

Ah, nice work.  Amending to csv seems to have sorted it!
