using the num# function in a textbox

Hi Guys,

I'm quite new to qlikview. I have a expression in a textbox that give me the results. Unfortunately it's not in percentage.

How can I change this to 37% in stead of 37,71186xxxxxxx

I think I need to use the Num# function, I just don't know how to add it in my expression:

=Num#(Count({<CustomClearance={OnTime}, Destination={BJS}>} Destination) / Count({<Destination={BJS}>} Destination)) * 100

Hope some can help me out!

Cheers

iSam

using the num# function in a textbox

Hi iSam,

I think you need the num() function (not the num#() function) to format your expression. Then you need to check out the format codes in the help.

In total maybe something like:

=Num(Count({<CustomClearance={OnTime}, Destination={BJS}>} Destination) / Count({<Destination={BJS}>} Destination) , '##0 %')

(You don't need the * 100 if using % in your format code)

Stefan

Re: using the num# function in a textbox

Hi Stefan,

THANKS a LOT!!! It works!! I’m new to Qlikview. I have some skills in designing layout. However I find it difficult to script. The reference manual is not so clear nor is the help file. L I’m not a programmer…

Do you perhaps have some tips how to master the qlikview scripting?

I already followed the online developers course.

Cheers!

Re: using the num# function in a textbox

I learned a lot just reading through the posts here in the forum, try reproducing and understanding the solutions.

There is a also thing called QlikView cookbook, which you can download here:

http://robwunderlich.com/downloads/

which provides a range of standard solutions to standard problems. Try to understand how they work.

If you go a little deeper, you need to learn set analysis, there just was a thread today which covers how to learn that: http://community.qlik.com/message/149112

I think there is also a book about QlikView, wait...

http://www.qvapps.com/en/ebooks/hello-qlikview-a-beginners-guide-to-qlikview.html

But best is just trying and playing around.

Have fun,

Stefan
