I am trying to create "Project Resource Planner" graph for a 3 year horizon. Basically I need to show the man hours required to run each of these projects over the 3 year period - and an overall view of the man hours required on a quarterly basis. This enables us to see min - max thesholds for manpower requirements through out the 3 years.
I have actually created this as a Line ( area) graph and it works really well. However getting the data into a loadable format for Qlik seems to be the difficult part as I want to do this using Qlik script as much as possible - not excel.
In short I want use a excel table with only ,
man hours required/per project/month,
and then generate the rest of the data required, using script code.
My plan is,
based on how I did this in excel :
after loading table ( with excel) basic info. I would use script, to (1) generate a 3 year view of manpower required in a table, (2) use cross table to turn that table into the data format that Qlik can the use for the area graph.
Before I try to tackle this, my question is - is this approach right or does anyone know a better way of doing this?
