Master calendar


should it be automatically?

Otherwise you can select by holding STRG the start and enddate in your Mastercalender and so you have all the dates between.

Master calendar

You need to make a relationship between your maste calendar table and your data table:

- A field in the maste calendar named, for example, DateID

- Another field in your data table named DatedID as well (both fields need to have the same name)

Qlikview will make a relation between both fields and the data will be automatically displayed.

Something like this:

//Calendar table

Let StartDate = num(date(YearStart(AddMonths(Today(),-48,0)),'YYYYMMDD'));

Let EndDate = num(date(YearEnd(AddMonths(Today(),0,0)),'YYYYMMDD'));


Load *,

Year(Date) AS [Year],

Month(Date) AS [Month];

Load Date($(StartDate)+(Iterno()-1),'YYYYMMDD') as Date,

Date($(StartDate)+(Iterno()-1),'YYYYMMDD') as DateID,

Autogenerate 1 While Date($(StartDate)+(Iterno()-1)) <=Date($(EndDate)) ;

/Data table


Load (...)

Date(datefield) as DateID;

Re: Master calendar

I notice you did not do a YTD and MTD field. How would I go about doing that?
