Reading from other website

Hello Everybody !

I am new to Qlikview. While exploring Qlikview functional, i notice a interesting feature - extract from web file. Some website does managed to be extracted by qlikview while others not for example, http://www.bursamalaysia.com/market/securities/equities/prices/#/?filter=BS02 . Can anyone elaborate on this ? Thanks

Cheers !

I'm not absolutely sure about it but yes I think that if the content will be created dynamically per javascript it won't work. If you don't need to query this website regular it might be an alternatively to store the site and/or doing a manually copy from the content. If it must be dynamically then you need to look if there is any API available (which then might be commercial).

What is your question?

Before develop something, think If placed (The Right information | To the right people | At the Right time | In the Right place | With the Right context)

Qlik can read data from websites which are included in (standard) tables like HTML Tables. Another possibility is the use of a specific connector - take a look on this: https://community.qlik.com/search.jspa?q=rest+connector&type=document.

If my understanding is correct Qlikview web pages can extract only direct hard-coded html tables

if html contain javascript generated table then it will not be able to extract data from javascript generated tables.
