QLIK Sense/Script/Line Graph/ETL/Cross Table

Hi Qlik Community.

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 year​s.

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 ,


​ Name​,

start dates,

end dates

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 ​load​ing​ table ( with excel) basic info. ​I would ​us​e​ 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?

​Hope so as it's seems quite complex.

​Many thanks,​
