Re: Trend Function of Excel in Qlik Sense


You can use linest_m and linest_b functions in expression editor to calculate the trend.

For example, if you have a YearValue - field, and SUM(Sales) measure then you should write this expression for trend.

linest_m(total aggr(SUM(Sales),YearValue ),YearValue )*YearValue +linest_b(total aggr(SUM(Sales),YearValue ),YearValue )


More information about these functions you can find in this topic:
