I came the same way, from another system. Most things are similar, some are different or new.
You can of course load all existing .csv files and concatenate (append) them to one another if their structure is always the same - you can do that in a loop or with a Wildcard_LOAD;
Or you can just load what you have (the 1st time round, then save it in a qvd_file.
=> From the 2nd time on, you would first load the qvd, then concatenate the new csv_file and save the end_result.
=> loading from a qvd_file is faster, so this would be preferable c.p.
For the scenario with a qvd file, you would
- The first time round
- Load the csv_file(s) into QlikView just as before
- use the STORE command to save it in qvd format (check if it's there)
- The second time round (and every time from then)
- LOAD everything from the qvd_file into QlikView
- LOAD the new csv_file (if the structure is always the same, it should be appended automatically; Just check
the number of records and the nr. of tables in the data_model (Ctrl+T))
- use the STORE command (like before), the existing qvd will be overwritten by the new, slightly bigger one
