Hands on Set Analysis from the ground up


Over the past few weeks I have been trying to answer some forum questions in my spare time. It really hasn't surprised me that about 25% of the questions require some form of Set Analysis. For other questions I can say "Oh just see the help for the ABC() function." But I can't just do that for set analysis because ...

I know that one of the most awesome features of Qlik is that you can do analysis on "sets" of data.

But, I also know that one of the most feared features of Qlik is that you can do analysis on "sets" of data.

By that I mean that you start out seeing these ridiculous, Greek looking, formulas that make no sense at all.

If you are an old pro, that's awesome and you are probably helping answer soooooooo many questions that involve Set Analysis so for that I thank you. If you are new to Qlik, or have been intimidated by this in the past, then this document is for you.

I've attached a hands on workshop to help you learn to understand this amazing feature that Qlik provides. I've also provided a QVF file you can use that is the starting point for the lab. Here is a starting sample:


The end of the workshop document contains a lot of links to additional information and offers a cheat sheet that even experience Qlikkies can keep to refer to.
