A customer asked me today if there was a QVW property for an application description that could be pulled as metadata by his scanner app.
I’ve found that using Variables is a very simple way to define additional metadata.
[qlikview]SET vAppDescription = This is the main Sales app. blah blah;[/qlikview]
A different script can load that variable with this bit of script:
LOAD [RawValue] as AppDescription
FROM [some qvw path.qvw]
(XmlSimple, Table is [DocumentSummary/VariableDescription]) WHERE Name = ‘vAppDescription’ ;[/qlikview]
Join me at the San Francisco Masters Summit for QikView for more scripting tips.
