First, create a connection to the database, either using ODBC or OLE DB using the Connect button in the script editor. Then use the Select button to browse through tables and views and extract the fields and tables you want.

Hope that helps.

You can try this:

  • open QlikView
  • go to File - Edit Script
  • for database choose OLE DB
  • check Force 32 Bit (i have PS on 64bit win)
  • Check Relative Paths
  • click button Connect
  • In Data Link Properties, on Provider window, choose "Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server"
  • In Data Link Properties, on Connection window, choose server name
  • use Win NT integrated security or specific user name and password
  • Click button: Test Connection
  • Then on Edit script section, choose Select button, and choose appropriate Database and Owner to select from tables in database.

Hope it helps,
