Hi,

you can set an expression in conditional calculation editor so, when it's evaluation returns true, the chart will be calculated, else it will be shown a warning message in chart's plot area.

You can overwrite message in chart's properties -> General tab -> Error messages

Hope it helps

Regards

Hi,

a conditional calculation is quite simply a calculation that you only perform if a specific condition is met - otherwise, you don't.

In QlikView, you can make pretty much everything dependent on conditions.

Hi,

Having expression in Calculation Conditions means
the expression has to evaluate to TRUE  before the chart displays information and if the condition is FALSE then
’Calculation condition unfulfilled’ is display.

When to use it varies. You can use it to pass info to user,
you can use it to count number of value selected in a field before displaying information.
There are various use cases, it depends on what you want to achieve.
