Hi Nikhil,

For binary load do this

binary <qvw filwe name>

the files should be in the same folder

used to import the full data model as it is from another dashboard.

In cases where you do not want to do the full reload and you need a copy of the same dashboard.

Note it will not load the layout information and the variables.

thanks,

Rajesh Vaswani

HEy,

You mean to say that binary load is only used in case if i am making new application and i need to load data from some other qlikview app. Is it so ??

If yes then let say:

I have disaster qlikview app. Now i created  another app say disaster1 and i want to load data from disaster app in edit script tab.

How can i do this ?? Can you tell me the syntax ??

Thanks

Hi yes your understanding is correct.

Few considerations:

1) There will be only one binary load per application

2) You will not get script from disaster to disaster1, You just get data model.

Have a look at attached applications.

Make sure to close threads.

Binary Load:

The binary statement is used for loading the data from another QlikView document, including section access data. It does not load the layout information or variables. Only one binary statement is allowed in the script and it can only be put as the first statement of a script.The syntax is:

Examples:

Binary c:\qv\customer.qvw;

Generally Binary Load is used to hide the scripts from Users.  First one Qlikview file with all the scripts required for the reports are created and then binary load this into another file by using

Script -> Qlikview File -> Select the Qlikview file created earlier.

You can load only one qlikview file by using Binary load.  By using this Binary Load Scripts are hidden from users.

Its much faster.

After binary load statement, you can add extra scripts below it

For First Question answer :

see it is not like that what ur asking in ur question ..... i just explained what is binary load and where we ll use and why ll use

for ur second question i have give the answer please go through that ..... and select the appropriate answer as a correct answer and close the thread
