    $ (dollar symbol) inside a variable script

    Luca Rizziero



      Inside the load script I need to use a variable containing an absolute path with a $ dollar symbol: it not runs, I think the problem is Qlik interprets it as a special symbol for returning a variable value.

      For instance I try to run:


      SET myvar = '\\server\datafiles$\qdstorage";

      STORE mytable INTO $(myvar)\mytable.qvd;


      no error is returned, but the script stop there.


      Is there a way to mask the $ symbol in order to use it inside a string variable ?

      Any other suggestion ?


      Thanks for helping people.
