    Let the User Select

    QlikView is about empowering the user. Allowing a user to freely choose what to look at and how to look at it is one of the cornerstones of Business Discovery. Another is about simplicity – which often translates into removing unnecessary technical obstacles so that the user can focus on the data and the information that lies hidden in it. This often leads to a situation where you have two different user roles: an application developer and a busi... View more

    A Historical Odyssey: QlikView 1

    1994 was the year when the Swedish soccer team took bronze in the world championships. It was also the year the channel tunnel opened. Boris Yeltsin was the Russian president and Bill Clinton was one year into his first term. 1994 was also the year when the first version of QlikView - or QuikView - was released.     Version 1.0 had only the logical inference between fields – it had no graphics capabilities and no calculations were poss...

    A Different Look on the Use of Repository Panel, Container Object and Alternate ...

    After doing a couple demos recently, I noticed that some of our customers are not aware of the repository panel. It came to me as a surprise as repository panel was introduced with QlikView 10. The repository is a QlikView app level entity that lists all sheet objects, dimensions and expressions that have been used within the current app.  The repository panel is an AJAX client only entity.  A user can view the content of the repository...

    Get the Dates Right

    QlikView has an intelligent algorithm to recognize dates independently of which region you are in. In most cases, you will have no problems loading them. It just works and you do not need to think about it. However, in some cases dates are not properly recognized and then you need to add some code in the script to make it work.   First of all – there are no data types in QlikView. Instead QlikView uses dual data storage for all field values;... View more

    Qonnections 2012- Social Media Meet-Up

    I attended my first ever Qonnections Summit this year in Miami Florida. What a great event with over 900 partner attendees and so much creative energy. To me the best part of the summit was being able to meet so many of our QlikCommunity contributors in person to collaborate, share ideas and gather feedback. It seemed like every time I turned around there was someone I have worked with online and finally had the opportunity to see in person. High... View more

    Recipe for a Gantt chart

    Have you ever wanted to create a Gantt chart in QlikView, only to find out that this chart type is not one of the pre-defined charts? Then you should be happy to learn that it is possible to create a Gantt chart and that it is not very difficult.   To be able to create this chart, you need some type of event in the data model, where each event has a start date (or time) and possibly also an end date. Further, an event should belong to some g... View more

    Welcome to the QlikView Design Blog

    Eighteen years ago I had just started a new job at QuikTech (no that’s not a typo) and my boss – one of the two founders – dropped a shrink-wrapped FoxPro database in my lap while saying: “You see, I have this idea about color coding information – green, white and gray. Can you see if you can achieve that with this database?”   At the same time, two other people in the company were given the same task but with other tools – Excel and a multi... View more
