The DLL is available on Salesforce AppExchange. Make sure you get the correct version - 32 or 64 bit - for your environment.

Basically you drop the DLL into the QlikView root folder (where qv.exe is). Then it appears as a custom data source in "Edit Script" (ctrl-E).

Once you're connected you retrieve the data with a standard SQL SELECT statement. If you download the sample Salesforce QVW it will give you some good examples.

Hope this helps.

Hy,

I took the DLL, put into the root folder, but when reload the file, had some error : Custom Connection Fail

On the script have the connection line like as:

CUSTOMCONNECT TO "Provider=SalesForceDLL.dll;UserId=$(SF_Username);Password=$(SF_Password);";

and i put the user and password in my application

Maybe my DLL or Application is old, because i dont find DLL on the Salesforce AppExchange.

TKS again!!!

Even if your DLL is "old" it should still work. I have only ever seen one version of the Salesforce DLL anyway.

Did you know that you need to append a Salesforce security token to your password? Also, you need to be using an edition of Salesforce that supports the API.

Try typing your username, password+token in the custom connection dialog and clicking on the "test connection" button. That will tell you whether the DLL is working or not.
