Qlikview - Call external script in load

Hi All,

Quick question.

I have a lot of similar scripts on a lot of different dashboard. If I change one script (to update etc), I am currently then having to manually replicate the same change in all of the other dashboard scripts.

Is it possible to save a qlikview script externally and then call it using script editor.

Thanks for you help in advance.

More flexible and modular as exporting the whole script would it be to use include-variables. See here what is meant: The $(Include) which you $(Must_Include) into your toolkit

You can Export and save your Script in an External File. Go to script editor-->File--> Export to script File. Call this file in different apps using Include key word.

Hi,

we recently started using scripts so i dont know if this is relevant but:

we include this in the code:

$(INCLUDE=..\06 Script\DB\DB.Inventory.qvs); //<----location of the script

CALL DB.Inventory; //<---name of the sub

Exit Script;

Script is externaly saved as DB.Inventory.qvs and starts with


SUB DB.Inventory

then some code

 

END SUB

Hope this helps.
