Incremental Load of new files into existing QVD

Hi all,

is it possible to attatch a new file to an existing QVD?

As example, I receive every day an new log file from a special system (as CSV).

These files have an name created by the machinename and the date of the report.

I would like to store them into an QVD (one for every seperate machine) and erase the original log file from the qlikview server (should only be stored on the main system).

So the QVD will grow every day about the amount of the new attached file.

Can anybody provide an example - how to do this?

Re: Incremental Load of new files into existing QVD

you actually do not append to a QVD.

What you can do is load the qvd into a qvw application table, append the new log file to the same table and store the whole thing again as a new qvd overwriting the old.

Loading from qvd without where clause is very quick and should solve your problem.

I m not sure, that this will help me because I would like to automate this process on the Qlikview server with an daily task.

I suggest looking at the BUFFER load prefix. Quite handy for this situation,
