Qlik Duplicating Values

Hello Everyone,

Some field values are duplicating when they are added into Qlik.

For example,

I have raw data that looks like so:   


Q1 Budget

Study Room Program Manager6000
Study Room Assistant1800
Generator Expenses300
Phonebills & Internet Expenses125
Professional Fees - Lawyer & Auditor1250
Public School Supervisors0
Revision & Consulting0
Marketing & Advertising0
Web Fees (Social Media)1000
Study Room Furniture (Two Class rooms & accessories)0
Equipment (Required for bigger premises)


But for some reason, when uploaded to Qlik, the values are duplicated.

Why is that? I know I can solve the issue using distinct i.e. Sum(distinct [Quarter One Budget]). But I am curious as to why this is happening. Please can someone explain this to me.

Thank you in advance,

Re: Qlik Duplicating Values

Hi Alison,

From you posted above looks like your Category table is not associated with Data table, so displaying Q1 Budget by Item will most probably cause some duplication. Rather than resolving this by using sum( distinct MeasureName) in the chart itself this should be resolve in your script by re-designing your data model.

How is your data connected?

If you could post a sample app that would be really helpful.

Could you share your code? Is difficult to understand what's happening without see it.

Re: Qlik Duplicating Values


Why Category and Date are not joined in your screenshot? In the small code you share are joined?

Why you have this tables called Data-1, Data-2, etc...?

Re: Qlik Duplicating Values

I have tables called Data-1 and Data-2 because I wanted to have a master calendar.

Hi Alison,

May be In your Master table have duplicate values and you applied master on transaction data . That may be cause.

Re: Qlik Duplicating Values

If you change this line in Date:

     [Item] as [Project Budget Item],

And write this


Item will be linked in both tables.
