Re: Set variable

Just like Avinash said do it in QlikView...

or ....

depending what you would like to use this variable for?

  • If it is kind of toggle where you want to switch dynamically variable value i would create a data-island field with all variable values it needs to have and then change a variable calculation to read from this field.

  • If this is a case where you always want to select max Year, regardless of any other selections - then maybe expression like this in variable would be handy:

     =Max({1} FiscalYear)

For different use case we could build different scenario and solution.
