Is this possible in Qlikview?


I got a question if I could make the following in Qlikview:


The table with data looks like

Modelprice per unitquantitydate
model 1200214-01-2012
model 1220118-01-2012
model 2555505-02-2012
model 3852108-02-2012
model 1190409-02-2012

In the real situation ,there are more rows - captain obvious

Because every unit is custom, each has a diffrent price.

The price for a model is the average.

I guess this is all the information you need, if not tell me.

Kind regards,


ps. I didn't know how to call the titel, but if you have a better solution please say it so I can change it.

Is this possible in Qlikview?

Hi ThijsJan,

I don't quite follow the data example with the graph example, but if you are wanting the bars to move up and down the axis based on value, then the trick is to create the axis value as a dimension in the load script, eg ...

Model, price per unit, quantity, date
model 1, 200, 2, 14-01-2012
model 1, 220, 1, 18-01-2012
model 2, 555, 5, 05-02-2012
model 3, 852, 1, 08-02-2012
model 1, 190, 4, 09-02-2012];

sum([price per unit] * quantity) as ModelTotalValue
resident Data group by Model;

Then when you create your bar-chart, use the new field (ModelTotalValue in my code) as the dimension, and include Model as one of the expressions but just set as Values on Data Points (no bar).  Under the Axes tab, tick Continuous for the Dimension Axis.

Hi thijsjan!
I think following script is what you're looking for.
flipside, thijsjan told in his message "The price for a model is the average.". That's why I used "avg([price per unit]) as AveragePricePerMonth". And then you can create bar-chart with dimensions AvaragePricePerMonth, Model and expression SumQuantityPerModel. BR
LOAD Model,
[price per unit],
ooxml, embedded labels, table is Лист1);

load Model,
avg([price per unit]) as AveragePricePerMonth,
sum(quantity) as SumQuantityPerModel
resident Model1
group by Model;

Thanks for the reply's, I will try it out now.

But if I group by load, is it then still possible to filter by date?

Yes, you are.
If you delete in my script row "DROP TABLE Model1;" and add List-object with expression [date]
