QVD Reload Time?

Hiya Guys,

I have a .qvw which is automatically reloaded via QMC on completion of its corresponding .qvd QlikMart.

If I display the "ReloadTime()" of the Dashboard (.qvw) then this is not a true reflection of how live the data is - as I may "reload" from the (static) .qvd during development.

Is there any way of bringing through, and displaying, the reload time (or creation date?) of an underlying QlikMart (.qvd) file into the frontend Dashboard (.qvw)?

Cheers,

Steve.

You can read the QVD creation time when you load the QVD and store that in a variable to use in place of the reload time. Use:

   Let vReloadTime = QvdCreateTime( 'your QVD file.qvd');

Hope that helps
