How to load two files of difference dates under one source file


Before my question, here are my situation.

I am working on an extract script to load daily reports from a server folder.

The logic of loading is to load the latest file until system close date

I have two reports to load: Report A has only one system close date, Report B has two system close dates, Phase 1 and Phase 2.

I named two reports as Source A and Source B and saved them in one master table. 'Year' is year of file dates.

I made a spreadsheet to list each system close date for two sources(reports), then I can use following script to load Source A filed and meet my loading logic.

But I can not use it to load Source B since it has Phase 1 and Phase 2 dates. How to load two files of different dates under one source file?

Can any Qlikview experts help me on this? Thanks so much for any help in advance!!!!!!


load Source&Year as SourceYear,

num(max([File Date])) as MaxDate

Resident  $(vTableNameInput)

Group by Source, Year;

left join (LatestDate)

load Source&Year as SourceYear,


   [File Date] as EndDate



(ooxml, embedded labels, table is Sheet1);


load SourceYear&Date(if(MaxDate >EndDate, EndDate, MaxDate),'YYYY-MM-DD') as Filter,


Resident LatestDate;

Drop table LatestDate;



Load *,

Source&Year&[File Date] as lookup,

Resident $(vTableNameInput)

Where Exists(Filter, Source&Year&[File Date]);
