QlikTip #36: Loading a mapping table directly from a QVD file (QV10 SR2+)

In the past it was not possible to load a mapping table directly from a QVD file. We had to use some workarounds to break the optimized load like:

FROM qvdFile.qvd (qvd)
WHERE 1=1;


    1 as Field_temp
FROM qvdFile.qvd (qvd);
DROP FIELD Field_temp FROM Mapping_Map;


just loading the fields to a temporary table and then using a RESIDENT LOAD.

Also have a look at the excellent article from Rob Wunderlich on several QVD-topics (“QVD Questions and answers”) where he also mentioned this issue.

Although I have not read any offiicial announcement on that topic a direct load from a QVD file into a mapping load is now possible in QV 10 SR2.

Just a little testing script, if you want to ensure if it really works:

    F1, F2
    A, A-mapped
    B, B-mapped
    C, C-mapped
STORE Map INTO Map.qvd(qvd);


// The real testing scenario starts here ...
Load *
FROM Map.qvd (qvd);

 ApplyMap('Mapping_Map', Pick(Ceil(3*Rand1),'A','B','C'),'n/a') as Dim1,
 Pick(Ceil(6*Rand1),'a','b','c','d','e','f') as Dim2;
 Rand() as Rand1,
 IterNo() as TransLineID,
 RecNo() as TransID
Autogenerate 1000
 While Rand()<=0.5 or IterNo()=1;

Good News! Although there is now some need to improve our existing scripts to improve the load time by some seconds :)

    Waste water (H2O) is any type of H20 of which the standard has been negatively affected by human activities.
    On the other hand, centralized systems are noticed to
    be expensive in the long run. It reduces two ratios commonly
    used to measure pollution: biological oxygen demand, which is lowered by more than 65 percent; and total suspended solids, which are cut
    by more than 70 percent.

    Hello, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and
    i was just curious if you get a lot of spam remarks?
    If so how do you reduce it, any plugin or anything you can recommend?
    I get so much lately it’s driving me crazy so any help is very much appreciated.

    Additionally, user opinions can be very valuable in helping you understand
    if your game has annoying glitches or not. Set one thousand years in the

    People expect the entertainment to be good, so whether
    you are looking for musicians for hire or magicians to surprise your attendees you will need to ensure they are professionals
    who are good in their chosen field. This allows you to get a very professional sounding quality
    to your music without spending a lot of money on fancy recording studio times.
    When I first moved to Los Angeles in the late 90′s,
    an actor wouldn’t get very far without a huge stack of black
    and white 8×10′s in their repertoire.

    Can I simply say what a relief to uncover somebody that truly knows what they are talking about on the internet.
    You actually know how to bring an issue to light and make it important.

    More people must read this and understand this side of your story.
    It’s surprising you are not more popular because you definitely possess the gift.
