Duplicates identical tables


I have a strange problem -

While I'm expecting of qlikview to automaticly concatenate the table creation that resides inside a loop it does NOT and just duplicates the tables.

Attaching is a screenshot of the loop and the tables schema.

Any suggestions?

Create the table as an empty stub before the loop and then within the loop force the Concatenate().

all right.

Thanks, I'll try that later on.

BTW - do you know WHY does this happen?

Re: Duplicates identical tables

After the first right join, the table now has additional columns. The net Load loads only two fields so will not autoconcatenate. Do as Bill suggest, create a dummy table and force concatenate.

Didn't see that one, thanks Rob.

Would it work if the script file first assembles the new segment and then performs a load that could autoconcatenate, like in:

FOR i = 1 to 28

  LET ...;

  LET ...;


  LOAD Account_id RESIDENT Accounts;


  LOAD Account_id,

       Month(...) AS Month,


  RESIDENT solar_ffield

  WHERE ...

  GROUP BY ...;

  Lost_InstallersXX: // Will AUTOCONCATENATE?

  LOAD * RESIDENT TempInstallerXX;

  DROP Table TempInstallersXX;


[Edit] Sorry, I thought I got a very simple version that does the same, only to realise that I can't get my head around the LOAD/RIGHT JOIN logic. What is it's purpose? It won't reduce the data loaded from solar_field.

Hi Rob

I didn't understand your sentence of - " The net Load loads only two fields "

what is a net load?
