The Directory statement defines which directory to look in for data files in subsequent LOAD statements, until a new Directory statement is made.




If the Directory statement is issued without a path or left out, QlikView will look in the QlikView working directory.

Working directory


Argument Description

A text that can be interpreted as the path to the qvw file.

The path is the path to the file, either:

  • absolute

    Example: c:\data\

  • relative to the QlikView document path.

    Example: data\

  • URL address (HTTP or FTP), pointing to a location on the Internet or an intranet.



Directory c:\userfiles\data;
