NPrinting filters based on selected fields

Hello,

Could anyone explain me how can I apply filters in a table chart in NPrinting app based on a 2 selected fields, so the entire table would be reduced based on that selected fields.

Is there any way to create filters based on a specific field value in order to reduce my table chart?

Thanks in advance

Re: NPrinting filters based on selected fields

Hi Anton,

Your question is not 100% clear to me.

If you want to create a filter based on two (or more) fields value you can refer to the page Filters ‒ Qlik NPrinting. Than the creted filter can be applied to Users, Reports or Tasks.

It is also possible to apply a filter to a QlikView object after adding it into a report template as you can see in the following picture:

At the moment this feature is supported only for QlikView objects. It will be supported also for Qlik Sense objects starting from next release in September 2017.

Please let me kno if I answered to your question. If not please add some details.

Best Regards,

Ruggero

Re: NPrinting filters based on selected fields

Hi Ruggero,

We have a similiar problem (NPrinting 17.3).

On base of a variable we tried to define a condition for a dimension in a QV-table. QV works fine but the resulting report in NPrinting for this table object don´t notice this condition. For the report the condition is always false (the column was not created).

E.g.:

Is this feature not yet implemented?

Thanks in advance

Re: NPrinting filters based on selected fields

Hi,

The problem is not completely clear to me, in any case in Qlik NPrinting 16 it was possible to use a filter to set the value of a QlikView variable. In Qlik NPrinting 17 this is not yet implemented, so you cannot set the value of QlikView variable from NP.

Another idea, if you insert in the report template the object tag (something like <CH123>) it will be replaced with the QlikView object at the moment of the report generation, so it cloud resolve.

I hope this helps, in case, please add some details and I'll try to help you :-)

Best Regards,

Ruggero

Re: NPrinting filters based on selected fields

Hi Ruggero,

Thanks for information.

I've prepared a little example, see QVW attachment.

The corresponding report template is:

The initial report after creating from on demand is:

After changing the currency via the button in on demand and creating a new report, we have the following result:

QV is ok, Nprinting Report not.

Especially the variable vCurrency has not changed it's value !

The new column is not recognized.

Hope this helps for analyzing.

Best Regards

Michael

Re: NPrinting filters based on selected fields

Addendum:

The use of variables in formulas like

"= if($(vCurrency)='Euro', sum("Euro Price" * Amount),  sum("GBP Price" * Amount)) "

don´t work in NPrinting also.

NPrinting choose the second as default. This is dangerous because if the first one is true the values in NPrinting Report are not correct !!

Regards

Michael
