Setting up a new data field based on an database field being read

Hi,

I have a numeric value (a number of days related to late delivery) being read in from our ERP database and would like a new field in Qlik to be available, set based on this value.

Using load editor, can i setup a 'category' value using logic like this?

If no-of-days-late <= 7 then category = '1' Else

   If no-of-days-late >= 8  and no-of-days-late <= 14 then category = '2' Else

      If no-of-days-late >= 15 and no-of-days-late <= 20 then category = '3'  Else

          category = '4'

End If



I'm sure this type of situation is what the load/declare statements are for(?) but I can't figure out quite how to do this.



Thanks,

In Load Script,

If ( no-of-days-late <= 7, '1',

   If (no-of-days-late >= 8  and  no-of-days-late <= 14, '2' ,

      If( no-of-days-late >= 15 and no-of-days-late <= 20 , '3' ,'4'))) as Category

Thanks for your reply.

Can you please help to show this in context, as I don’t follow, sorry.

My script is shown below.  The field I’m trying to use is actually ‘OtifDays’.

To make the example simpler, if I want a new field of ‘OtifCategory’, to be ‘1’ if ‘OtifDays’ is <=7 and ‘2’ if >7, how would this look in the code?

Where do I put in the script and where does the value ‘OtifCategory’ become available, as an available dimension in my sheet?

Do I use ‘LOAD’ or ‘SET’ or another command?

I appreciate your help.

Fantastic, thank you very much. .

It's much clearer now. I wasn't understanding to include in the existing load statement
