    Help with simple append load



      I have a qvd file that is updated daily that show in-transit inventory.

      Now I would like to save a snapshot of the in-transit inventory every last day of a month so that I can use this to show monthly trends going forward.


      Basicly what I have done is to create a field called  CheckMonthEnd with this logic: If(Date(Now())=MonthEnd(Date(Now())),1,0) as CheckMonthEnd. CheckMonthEnd will have a value 1 or 0.


      What I want to do now is to save the file with a date appended to the file name if CheckMonthEnd=1.


      Attached is the qvd. Hope somebody could point me in the right direction.


      Best regards,

          Think that you only need to advise the content of the field MaxCheckMonthEnd to the variable?

          If so, please change your line 80 to:


          let vCheckMonthEnd = PEEK('MaxCheckMonthEnd', 0, 'MaxMonth');

            In your script, you could do a test for the end of the month (if we assume that your script runs 7 days a week), and store the resident table a second time to a different file. Like



            STORE InTransitInventory INTO [IntransitInventory.qvd] (qvd); // Regular daily store


            IF Floor(Today()) = Floor(MonthEnd(Today())) THEN

              LET vFileTag = date(Today(), 'YYYYMMDD');

              STORE InstransitInventory INTO [IntransitInventory_$(vFileTag).QVD] (qvd); // Special store

            END IF

              I implemented following solution:


              let vSaveDate = date(today(), ‘YYYYMMDD’);

              let vPeriod = MonthName(Now());


              let vCheckMonthEnd = If(Date(floor(Now()))=Date(Floor(MonthEnd(Now()))),1,0);


              STORE InTransit INTO \\InTransit_Daily_$(vSaveDate).qvd;



              if  $(vCheckMonthEnd) = 1 then


              STORE InTransit INTO \\InTransit_Monthly_$(vPeriod).qvd;


              end if
