Double y-axis & dimension Charts?

Is there any way in Qlikview to recreate this kind of chart?

Double y-axis & dimension Charts?

Bryan,

Here's an example. What you have to do is go to the Axes tab, select an expression and define it as having the position right (top) and then you check the split axes option.

I usually use this feature for line graphs so I hadn't noticed that in the bar graphs the bars don't match up in the dimension label. Maybe somebody has a solution for that.

Regards.

Is there a way to keep one dimension on one side of the graph and the other on the other side?

And yes the bars not being on top of one another is kind of obnoxious.

Same tab in the chart properties, see Position - left(bottom) and right(top)

I tried tinkering with that, it didn't seem to have any effect. I see the same results in the example Karl provided.

You're right, it doesn't work with split axes. Looks like a bug... :-(

QlikView seems to ignore the left (bottom) and right (top) options when you enable the split axis option.

Maybe this isn't the prettiest solution, but creating two graphs with the same dimension and aligning them up so that one is exactly on top of the other. On the top graph you can disable the Show Legend checkbox so that the dimension value shows only one time.

Regards.

That's what I was thinking I might end up doing.

Thanks for the help!
