    How do I make good use of "Sections" in the data load editor?

    Henrik Roikjer

      Hi all,

      I wanna develop an app regarding customer complaints.

      I have a few questions I hope you can help me with.



      Is there a smarter way to use "sections" in the data load editor.


      In Qlik Sense Data load editor, I have been using the main script where I added something like this:

      IF([Warranty situation]='202-BILL-Exchange' or

      [Warranty situation]='202-BILL-Loaner' or

      [Warranty situation]='235-BILL-Returned to Stock', 'Warranty',


      and statements like:

      "Customer complaint number as CCN" for 2 different uploaded spreadsheets.


      Is it possible for me to create a new section where I have all my "IF" scripts and statements and then another one called "load data" where I just reload my data?


      Thanks in advance !!


      Best regards,

          The division of the script into sections has no effect on what script gets executed.  Dividing script into sections is analogous to the pages of a book.  It just makes it easier to read and manage but the result is the same.


          It's common practice to add no script to the main tab.  And then create a new section for each table you are loading. Other common sections up front are "Vars" where you define variables that are used later in the script.
