How to connect to Cache database from QlikView

Hi QlikFriends,

I am in need to extract data from a cache database into my qlikview dashboard. This is the first time I am facing such a requirement and till now I used to connect and extract data from oracle and sql server.

Can anyone help me in getting this connection right. Do i need to install a new connection driver for this process ?

Thanks

Vishnu

Hi

I think you can connect using odbc connection.

Did u face any performance issue while loading the data into qv??

Hi Deepak,

I remember I had to download specific driver for connecting the cache DB.

Once this was done, the loading happened just like as it happens with any other db.

HI Vishnu,

We have case where QV is not able to load the data at all not even for one month. We heard pulling data cache database is bit difficult. Is there anything we need to consider.

As I remember, Cache is a "non relational database" and so needs to be treated differently in practice, though using it as a LOAD in QV shouldn't be an issue as you're rebuilding your keys, links, joins and tables in the Script.

You may be caught out by the fact that Cache holds all data as strings and null data are zero length empty strings.
