    Loading .csv

    Juan Escobar



      I have this file.csv, and when I load it into QlikView it keeps a lot of quotation marks (""Field_Name""), and I see them when I recharge all the data.


      How can I get rid of this?


      Thank you very much.

          Hi Juan,


          Make sure you mark the "MSQ" quoting style in the wizard that apperas when you click on the "Table File..." button in the Edit Script window. You may need to use the PurgeChar() function on the fields to remove additional double quotes signs:


          LOAD PurgeChar(FieldName, '"') AS CleanFieldName
          FROM file.csv
          (txt, codepage is 1252, embedded labels, delimiter is ';', msq);


          Hope that helps.

            You can remove double quotes from a specific field using


            PurgeChar(FieldName, Chr(34) )


            int the load statement.
