Add

The Add prefix can be added to any LOAD or SELECT statement in the script to specify that it should add records to another table. It also specifies that this statement should be run in a partial reload. The Add prefix can also be used in a Map statement.

Perform a partial reload using the Reload button. For more information, see Button. You can also use the Qlik Engine JSON API.

To perform a partial reload on a schedule, click More on an app and then choose Schedule reload. In the dialog box that opens, turn on Partial reload.

Syntax:  

Add [only] [Concatenate[(tablename)]] (loadstatement | selectstatement)


Add [only] mapstatement

 

During a normal (non-partial) reload, the Add LOAD construction will work as a normal LOAD statement. Records will be generated and stored in a table.

If the Concatenate prefix is used, or if there exists a table with the same set of fields, the records will be appended to the relevant existing table. Otherwise, the Add LOAD construction will create a new table.

A partial reload will do the same. The only difference is that the Add LOAD construction will never create a new table. There always exists a relevant table from the previous script execution to which the records should be appended.

No check for duplicates is performed. Therefore, a statement using the Add prefix will often include either a distinct qualifier or a where clause guarding duplicates.

The Add Map...Using statement causes mapping to take place also during partial script execution.
