When using , binary loads are recommended because they improve speed and performance, helping you to work with your data more effectively.
This is because every time you perform a writeback operation, a reload operation is also required. Binary loads will speed up the reload process, which is where the improvement in performance can be measured.
For an overview of the Binary Load structure please see the Qlik Sense article here.
In Qlik Sense, the binary statement loads data from another Qlik Sense app or Qlik View document, and can section access data. It must be placed at the very beginning of the script, and only one binary statement per script is permitted.
The syntax of the statement is shown below.
binary [path] filename
- filename - The name of the file, including the extension (.qvw or .qvf)
- path - The file path, which should be a reference to a folder data connection if the file is outside the Qlik Sense working directory.
Binary commands can only be used to load data from a .qvf file, rather than any other source (e.g. data held in an app).
