Inline Table Example

dave.c.robbo

New user to QlikView, and I need to create a simple Inline table.

We have a Territory field that is imported from our ERP system, and each territory relates to a Salesman. The users of the report need to be able to select by the Salesman name, so it automatically selects the multiple territories that salesman is associated with.

I've created a test Inline table, no problem, but I'm unsure how exactly I get this data to filter in QlikView via the listbox selection above the pivot table?

Example Inline Data that I've used as a test:

LOAD * INLINE [
territ, Salesman
1, Jim McGeorge
6, Gareth Jones

65, Gareth Jones

3D, Jim McGeorge

2C, Francine Killey
];

There's a listbox above the pivot table data on the report itself, in which I've got all the territories listed and this works fine. How I turn this listbox so that it references and filters by the above inline table is what has me stumped.

    Hi

    Make sure that the territory-field in your inline-table matches your territory-field from the ERP system.
    They need to be named exactly the same. That way, QV will connect these two tables and you will be able to filter on Salesman.

      Thanks Fredrik,

      I did actually try that earlier today, but I thought it had caused the Territory field to get overwritten when I reloaded the data (as it changed the field choices), so I didn't check it in the list box. Just done it again, and it works like a dream.

      Thanks
