QlikView App: Using Actions To Change Date Variables

    This QlikView shows how buttons can be used to increment or decrement date variables.


    Where expressions call for comparisons to dates these can often be looked up from a date table.  Better performance and improved manageability can be obtained by comparing to dates stored in a variable.  Variables can be updated from data in the model or via triggers, but I find a better approach is to use buttons and actions.


    The QlikView was originally written as a response to the following QlikCommunity thread http://community.qlik.com/message/130380


    Further examples of using Actions can be found in this blog post and Video: http://bit.ly/15PEpQ9
