Guidelines for data and fields

There are certain conventions and limitations you need to be aware of when working with Qlik Sense. For example: the upper limit for data tables and fields as well as maximum amount of loaded data in Qlik Sense.

Guidelines for amount of loaded data

The amount of data that can be loaded into Qlik Sense is primarily, but not exclusively, limited by the amount of primary memory of the computer.

Upper limits for data tables and fields

Be aware when building very large apps that a Qlik Sense app cannot have more than 2,147,483,648 distinct values in one field.

The number of fields and data tables as well as the number of table cells and table rows that can be loaded, is mainly limited by RAM.

When importing a dataset file into a Qlik Sense app or space with Data manager (drag-and-drop or other direct uploads), the maximum number of fields that can be loaded is 5000.

Recommended limit for load script sections

The recommended maximum number of characters to be used per load script section is 50,000 characters.
