Hi,

You can use order by only in Resident load only.  If you want to use order by then load QVD data into temporary table and then using resident load sort the data and then drop the temporary table.  Check the script below

TempTable:

LOAD

     *

FROM FileName.QVD (qvd);

Data:

LOAD

     *

RESIDENT TempTable

ORDER BY Field1, Field2;

DROP TABLE TempTable;

Hope this helps you.

Regards,

Luis.

Sorting (ORDER BY) is only possible with Resident (already in memory) files.

Sorting is not possible when reading from files.


You could add a sort order before Storing the data in the QVD.
