Issues in reloading csv file from stored QVD

Hi All,

we have generated QVD's in csv format. when we open the csv file in Excel or notepad the amount fields are showing with

rupee sign ₹ as prefix of number.

When we reload the QVD into QVW the same data is showing with $ sign as prefix.

Below is the code iam using for QVD and CSV generation

STORE [Crm_quotes] into $(vQvdFile) (qvd);

STORE [Crm_quotes] into $(vQvdFile).csv (UTF8, txt,  delimiter is ',');

Re: Issues in reloading csv file from stored QVD

There is nothing wrong when the data is loaded from the database and then stored in the in QVD, howeve when stored as txt as csv file, all the fields which were of currency/money type  are appended with the currency symbol.

Currently it is showing indian rupee symbol, however even that default server currency is $, so not sure from where QV is picking up that symbol.

Here are some sample rows

PrimaryKey,CreatedTimeStamp,ModifiedTimeStamp,PriceList,Currency,CreatedBy,Opportunity,SalesTerritory,AccountOwner,Modifiedby,OpportunityType,Owner,Account,QuoteNumber,RevisionNumber,Quote,TotalAmount,TotalLineItemAmount,TotalLineItemDiscountAmount,TotalAmountLessFreight,EffectiveFrom,TotalTax,TotalDiscountAmount,State,Status,Customer,ActualQuoteMargin,ApprovalStatus,DocumentStage,MultiYearContract,NetMargin,QuoteID,QuoteTotalCost,ContractName,PaymentTerms,TotalNetProfit,Delivery,Validity

Re: Re: Issues in reloading csv file from stored QVD

Hi,

may be like this, you have your amount in text format, which you need to convert to money.

Please find the attached application.

you can use this code in your front end.

=money(sum(num#(QuoteTotalCost,'₹#,##0.00')),'₹#,##0.00')

If you want to do the same in backend then use the below code.

LOAD PrimaryKey,

     CreatedTimeStamp,

     ModifiedTimeStamp,

     PriceList,

     Currency,

     CreatedBy,

     Opportunity,

     SalesTerritory,

     AccountOwner,

     Modifiedby,

     OpportunityType,

     Owner,

     Account,

     QuoteNumber,

     RevisionNumber,

     Quote,

     TotalAmount,

     TotalLineItemAmount,

     TotalLineItemDiscountAmount,

     TotalAmountLessFreight,

     EffectiveFrom,

     TotalTax,

     TotalDiscountAmount,

     State,

     Status,

     Customer,

     ActualQuoteMargin,

     ApprovalStatus,

     DocumentStage,

     MultiYearContract,

     NetMargin,

     QuoteID,

     QuoteTotalCost,

     money((num#(QuoteTotalCost,'₹#,##0.00')),'₹#,##0.00') as QuoteTotalCost1, 

     ContractName,

     PaymentTerms,

     TotalNetProfit,

     Delivery,

     Validity

Re: Issues in reloading csv file from stored QVD

Hi.

When you load the data from the database the currency amount is stored as simple text. The reason is that QV can't recognize the number format.

You can set the appropriate default numeric format with variables (at the script start) or you can use conversion functions like num#(). Then you can store and load the numbers properly.
