Storing data in a .qvd

Hello to my QlikView friends.  I have what I hope is an easy question to answer.  When I run a .qvw, I then store it in a .qvd.  If an hour later I again run the same .qvw and store it in the same .qvd file, does it save over the original record set in the .qvd, or append to it?  If it does append to it, how can I make it delete the original contents of the .qvd before adding new data to it?  Thank you.

It will overwrite the existing qvd.

Thank you swuehl. I thought so. Do you know how to append to a .qvd? Just curious. Thanks again.

Load your qvd data first, concatenate your new data in your load script to the resident table, store the table back to the qvd.
