The Include/Must_Include variable specifies a file that contains text that should be included in the script and evaluated as script code. You can store parts of your script code in a separate text file and reuse it in several documents. This is a user-defined variable.





There are two versions of the variable:

  • Include does not generate an error if the file cannot be found, it will fail silently.
  • Must_Include generates an error if the file cannot be found.

If you don't specify a path, the filename will be relative to the QlikView document working directory. You can also specify an absolute file path.

Note: The construction set Include =filename is not applicable.
