Hi Sunil/Srividhya.

Thanks for your response.

When loading the data from the Qvd file if you are using the syntax as

Load * from a.qvd; -------- It is not getting executed

Load * from a.Qvd(Qvd);------It is working fine.

Any architectural change in behaviour of the second one?

Hi XXX,

you can find the ()-bracket at the end of the load-statements reading from "type file".

Text-files like:

LOAD @1
FROM
(txt, codepage is 1252, no labels, delimiter is '\t', msq);

reading from Excel-files similar:

LOAD .... FROM [xyz.xls] (biff, embedded labels, table is Tabelle1$);

So I think to have a consistent syntax the load-statement to read from a qvd(-file) has also the ()-brackets. Even there is only one content (qvd) at the moment, but ready for future options.

If you omit the (qvd) specification when reading from the qvd, the default filetype is (txt) is used . Which is why you must specify (qvd) when loading from a QVD.
