    How to create a QVD file from a SAS dataset

    Maria Poulsen



      I would like to know how to create a QVD file directly from a SAS dataset (SAS7BDAT file).


      I know that I can do this:

      1. Save the SAS data into e.g. an Excel file

      2. Using the script to load the Excel file and then write:

           store Testdata into E:\path\name.qvd;


      And then I can open a new Qlikview application and write:


      LOAD var1,






      to use the newly created QVD file.


      But how do I avoid the step with the Excel file - and instead create the QVD file directly from the SAS dataset?


      Kind regards
