Re: How to add lineal trend in Qlik sense

Hi Michael,

Could you please help . I want to display trend line in my QlikSense app but for some reason when i try to use your code it doesn't work.

Here is the code used:

linest_m(total aggr(if(sum(SalesDollars),sum(SalesDollars)),Year_Month),Year_Month)* 

only({1}Year_Month)+linest_b(total aggr(if(sum(SalesDollars),sum(SalesDollars)),Year_Month),Year_Month)

Year_Month is in this format 2014-2

I don't get any lines or point on my graph   when i try to use code above.

Thank you in advance.

This definition will not work:

Month(OrderDate) & '-' & Year(OrderDate) as MonthYear

as it will be defined as $text $ascii

Hi Tigran,

Please see attached .qvf - just copy to your C:\Users\<user profile>\Documents\Qlik\Sense\Apps and refresh with F5 or restart Desktop. (In most cases it should refresh automatically)

Launch the  Sales Analysis with Master Calendar app

NOTE: I have used a Master Calendar with mine, to define the various date components.

Here is the expression:

I just replaced Sales and MonthYear:

linest_m(total aggr(if(sum(Sales),sum(Sales)),MonthYear),MonthYear)*

only({1}MonthYear)+linest_b(total aggr(if(sum(Sales),sum(Sales)),MonthYear),MonthYear)

If you need to get the Master Calendar to work with your data do this:

Locate the Calendar script and put in your date field here in this section:

Temp: 

    Load 

                   min(OrderDate) as minDate, 

                   max(OrderDate) as maxDate 

    Resident Orders; 

Define the data that you load with the date field (first should be on top of Calendar tab)

with the a table definition named Orders as in:

Re: How to add lineal trend in Qlik sense

Thank you for the reply,

So i do have same exact filed like you have in your example

in my case its called MonthYearText  (example Dec-2014)

Im using this code and it doesn't work .

linest_m(total aggr(if(sum(SalesDollars),sum(SalesDollars)),MonthYearText),MonthYearText)*

only({1}MonthYearText)+linest_b(total aggr(if(sum(SalesDollars),sum(SalesDollars)),MonthYearText),MonthYearText)

Could you please explain i think i'm missing something here. I ran your application and it does work but when i do it in my app it doesn't.Do i need master calendar? i have exactly same filed defined in my app.

Thank you .

Re: How to add lineal trend in Qlik sense

Hi Tigran - how is your MonthYearText defined - that may be the issue, as you can see how mine is defined in the screenshot:

It is $numeric,$integer, $timestamp, $date

You can see this in the data model viewer?

Did you use the Master Calendar that was in the app I gave you?

Can you attach your example?
