The replace prefix is used to drop the entire Qlik Sense table and replace it with a new table that is loaded or selected.

Note: Partial reload is currently only supported by using the Qlik Engine JSON API.


Replace [only](loadstatement |selectstatement |map...usingstatement)


The replace prefix can be added to any LOAD, SELECT or map...using statement in the script. The replace LOAD/replace SELECT statement has the effect of dropping the entire Qlik Sense table, for which a table name is generated by the replace LOAD/replace SELECT statement, and replacing it with a new table containing the result of the replace LOAD/replace SELECT statement. The effect is the same during partial reload and full reload. The replace map...using statement causes mapping to take place also during partial script execution.


Argument Description
only An optional qualifier denoting that the statement should be disregarded during normal (non-partial) reloads.
