Thanks, I'll try that. The reason I was trying to do it as part of the table definition was that I wanted to make the values changeable, as with the InputField structure in QlikView. Does this work with Sense also?
But i know that BWISE ( qlik partner on market.qlik.com) is offering a brand new 'write back' capability that was just updated for Qlik Sense. It allows users to change / adjust / add commentary directly in Sense and 'write back' the values to a 3rd party database... a more resilent solution than inputfields in qlikview.
