Create a dimension

Qlik experts,

Can I create a dimension based on a measure?

I need to create a chart where the dimension (x-axis) is the name of a measure. The measure is a count for grater than 8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1. The x-axis needs to be 8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1 and the y-axis is the count of custID greater than 8,7,6….

count({<Value1={">8"}>} CustID)

Please see sample app:

Maybe add something like this to your script:

For i = 1 to 8

Groups:

LOAD DISTINCT

     Value1,

     $(i) as Group

Resident Data

WHERE Value1 > $(i);

Next i

Then use Group as dimension and just a Count(CustID) as expression.

In Dimension you can use

=if(Value1>=8,Value1)

or You can do this in script as well

Data:

LOAD

    Dato,

    CustID,

    Value1,

   if(Value1>=8,Value1) as [Value8],

    Value2

FROM [lib://Data/SampleData.xlsx]

(ooxml, embedded labels, table is Sheet1);

And then in front end just use [Value8] as your dimension

For measure use

count({<Value1={">8"}>} CustID)

Thanks!!

Can I add more values to the dimension? Like -  if(Value1>=7,Value1),[Value7],  if(Value1>=6,Value1) as [Value6]?

And can these be grouped on top of each other? See picture below (this is created based on a calculated excel-file)

Main X-axis would be only 1 but you can add 1 more dimension thats it.

For measure you can use Multiple Alternative measures but only 1 measure can be seen at a time


As for creating buckets you can create buckets based on number....


Search for creating Age buckets in community. You'll get an idea how to create new values based of >=8 , <=5 etc

Thanks, Stefan

Your suggestion works fine!

One follow-up question: In Data load editor I normally use Qualify *;  and Unqualify Dato; to connect keys between datasets. When I use this, loading following your suggestion I get an error message saying that Vaule1 is missing. When I remove Qualify and Unqualify, it works fine.

Do you have any suggestion why this happens? Or should I not use qualify and Unqualify at all in Data Load Editor?

Thanks for your help!
