Hi,

Binary load is the load performs for the QVW file means when any QVW file loads into the another QVW and load all structure from another QVW to another QVW.

And at a time only single QVW is loaded as binary file.

binary load is a way to call any other QV doc into your current QV doc, but the only caveat is you can use it only once in your current doc.

Using a binary load, you are loading a full data model from an already created QlikView application.


For example, our dashboards and reporting apps are typically built in 3 stages... we use a handful of apps to acquire and transform data from various sources and export the raw but "formatted" data in QVDs. In a second stage app, we load the qvds into one data model, perform any additional data transformation on the full set. Then finally, the third and final stage is the "front-end" interface where we load the qvw (called a binary load) into an app where the dashboard, reporting and visualizations are created.

syntax would be something like:

Binary customer.qvw;

Binary c:\qv\customer.qvw;

where customer is the qvw to be loaded in current qvw

its_anandrjs

Syntax is Binary [Qlikview filename.qvw]

And when you go to file wizard and click on the Qlikview File by default the syntax of the file get loaded above to set expression

Ex;-

Binary [Qlikview Sales File.qvw];
SET ThousandSep=',';
SET DecimalSep='.';
SET MoneyThousandSep=',';
SET MoneyDecimalSep='.';
