Combining Two Dimension into One in Combo Chart Qliksense

Hi All/@tresesco  @sunny_talwar 

I need your help on one of our scenario.

I have to combine two dimension into one in x axis.

Year and New Year.

If the user selects ID =1, then the output should be 

bharathkamath28_1-1601448155537.png

 

How to achieve this scenario. Please help me on this.

I have attached the sample app. Please have a look.

 

Thanks

@bharathkamath28 Have you tried selecting ID2? Did it not work when you selected ID 2?

When ID = 2

@bharathkamath28 There might be a better LinkID you can create, but based on the data provided... try this

Base1:
LOAD RowNo() as LinkID,
	 *;
load * inline [
ID,Value,Year
1,10,2020
2,15,2021];

B:
LOAD RowNo() as LinkID,
	 *;
Load * inline [
ID,ID2,Bal,NewYear
1,1.1,25,2020
1,1.2,30,2021
1,1.3,40,2022
2,2.1,50,2020
2,2.2,60,2024
2,2.3,70,2025];

LinkTable:
LOAD DISTINCT Year as LinkYear,
	 LinkID,
     ID,
     'Base1' as Table
Resident Base1;

Concatenate (LinkTable)
LOAD DISTINCT NewYear as LinkYear,
	 LinkID,
     ID,
     'B' as Table
Resident B;

DROP Field ID from Base1;
DROP Field ID from B;

May be like:

A:
load * inline [
ID,Value,Year
1,10,2020
2,15,2021
];
B:
Concatenate
Load *,
    NewYear as Year,
    Bal as Value
    inline [
ID,ID2,Bal,NewYear
1,1.1,25,2020
1,1.1,30,2021
1,1.3,40,2022
2,2.1,50,2020
2,2,2,60,2024
2,2.3,70,2025
];

I don't want to change the data model because it messes up all my other logic and charts.

I have more than 15 tables in my data model.

So, without modifying the data model can we use expressions to achieve this scenario.

Please help.

You need to create a common dimension somewhat. You can achieve this by either concatinating the two transaction tables into a single transaction table or  try to create a commoo dimension table that links the A and B to a common dimension. 

Below an example on how you can do the concatination.

You could probably achieve something close to that in the UI, however, I would strongly discourage that. This should be dealt in the script. Otherwise, this is going to be a bad data model and as a result there would be many things in the UI that you would find difficulty with.

Below is my 4 Tables in my Data model.

bharathkamath28_0-1601455287364.pngbharathkamath28_1-1601455321426.png

when the user logins always the default Name= A will be selected.

And User might select ID2 to analyse the data

Then how should be the data model to achieve this scenario.

@bharathkamath28 May be create an island table which doesn't hamper your data model

IslandYear:
LOAD DISTINCT Year as IslandYear
Resident Base1;

Concatenate (IslandYear)
LOAD DISTINCT NewYear as IslandYear
Resident B;

and then use IslandYear as dimension with two measures

Sum(If(IslandYear = Year, Value))
Sum(If(IslandYear = NewYear, Bal))

This will work fine but the user might click on other dimensions like ID2.

As this is the island table and not associated with our main data model.

I need this chart to be associated with our main data model.
