In the R script get data, is there a difference between:
- putting the code explicitely
- source of the code (and the code can be either in local or in a sharepoint)
I was thinking that if there are some differences it is when refreshing the data source, but i do not know ?
Any insights on that?
Thanks and Regards,
Actually, I think they are different source types, one is r script the other is file from local or sharepoint. When you use on second methods, you need a gateway to handle refresh of file datasource.
Thanks for your answer but for the two cases I elicited I was thinking of the same source type: R script.
But in one case I write the code explicitely
and in the other case I write only 1 line of code which is source("https//sharepoint/.../prog.r").
What you are saying is that when a R script is the source of the data, then I need a personal gateway, is that right?
So, if this is true, then there is no differences between my two methods in terms of schedule refresh?
Thanks for your insights,
