    Multiple MS Access Tables & QVDs

      It is my understanding that, when selecting multiple tables from one MS Access mdb, a QVD must be created for each table.  Is there a work around for that.  Thanks for your help.

      SQL SELECT `Absorption $ Effect`,
          `Absorption % Actual`,
          `Actual Units Hour`,
          `Daily Prod ID`,
          `Downtime Hours`,
          `Floor Changes Units`,
          `Product Number`,
          `Production Eff %`,
          `Sched Hours`,
          `Sched Units`,
          `Yield Eff %`
      FROM `Detail - Efficiency`;
      SQL SELECT `Absorption %`,
          `C/O Hours`,
          `C/O Hours per occurance`,
          `Change overs per day`,
          `Cost per unit`,
          `Daily Prod ID`,
          `Labor cost per hour`,
          `Prod Number`,
          `Scaling Weight`,
          `Target eff Labor`,
          `Target eff Machine`,
          `Target eff Yield`,
          `Units Prod`,
          `Yield per Dough`
      FROM `Detail - Prod Main`;

              The best practise is to generate qvd for each and every table,


              But it also depends up on your data model.


              For example if you always need table A left joined with table B, then you can create a qvd which will  have the data from A joined B.

            Hi sumski,


            with reference to Kaushik's comment a common best practise is to store all loaded/created table in qvd-format by using the following code at the very end of your script for expample:


            FOR i = 1 to NoOfTables()
              LET vTableName = TableName($(i)-1);
              LET vOutfile = '$(vTableName).qvd';
              STORE [$(vTableName)] INTO [$(vOutfile)] (qvd);
            NEXT i
