ralfbecher / QlikView_Straight_Table_on_Fields.qvs
Last active Dec 22, 2015
Having a straight table chart in QlikView with $Field as dimension to count the occurances of values per field. The given expression creates a nested if()-function like this: if($Field='FieldName1',count(FieldName1),if($Field='FieldName2',count(FieldName2), ... etc. Hint: Concat() aggregation function seems to be the only one which works with $F…
View QlikView_Straight_Table_on_Fields.qvs
// expression for count($Field), no leading '=':
$(=concat(TOTAL 'if($Field=' & chr(39) & $Field & chr(39) & ',count([' & $Field & '])', ',') & concat(TOTAL right($Field&')',1)))
// expression for count(DISTINCT $Field):
=FieldValueCount($Field)

=MakeWeekDate(subfield(field, '/', 1), subfield(field, '/', 2), 0)
You can’t perform that action at this time.
