Link Problems between excel sheets

Hi,

I'm working on a qlikview desktop script. This script is loading from an excel sheet with 3 different sheets. I'm able to load the data, but the linking between the 3 sheets is not working properly.

I'm using a sheet called "Link" to link my first sheet with the the 3rd sheet.

Here is my script:

LOAD *

FROM

(ooxml, embedded labels);

LOAD *

FROM

(ooxml, embedded labels, table is Link)

LOAD *

FROM

(ooxml, embedded labels, table is People)

I see the corrolation between the first sheet and link happening. I don't see the happening between Link and People
.

ID between first sheet and second is DEV_ID and between second and 3rd is PERSON_ID.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Re: Link Problems between excel sheets

Can you post the field names that these three sheets have?

Thanks

Re: Link Problems between excel sheets

check the names and the case (upper / lower) of the fields you want use to associate:

same name and same case

Re: Link Problems between excel sheets

You want all of them or just the key?

Sheet 1 - DEV_ID

Sheet 2 - DEV_ID, PERSON_ID

Sheet 3 - PERSON_ID

Hi,

I've copied and pasted the names from one field to another. They are all the same spelling/and case sensitivity.

Qlikview is seeing they as primary keys.

Re: Link Problems between excel sheets

By any chance, does DEV_ID also exist in Sheet 3? It might be concatenating if those are the fields that you have.

Re: Link Problems between excel sheets

Please make sure that the Field Names are common (case insensitive) on the Excel.

Please add all the field names to your Load statement so you can see if any difference field names.

P.S: Please post sample data to debug the issue.

Hi Sinan,

It does not. Sheet 2 is supposed to do the coloration between DEV_ID and PERSON_ID.

Reason being is we have more people per device and I didn't want to have multiple redundant records.

Re: Link Problems between excel sheets

As dathu.qv suggested, it might be much easier if you could post a sample dataset.

Thanks

Like, would you like the file itself or the excel sheet?
