Suppressing dimension values within Qlik Sense

Hey Folks-

I've got a bar chart that I want to suppress some dimension values in the display only, not modify the data. Basically, I'm looking at responses given from questionnaires and I'm only curious about negative responses. Currently, the data codifies these into a 3 digit numeric code, which is the dimension I'm representing with a measure of total responses.

Is there a way I can keep my chart from displaying 3-4 of these responses? There will never be a huge amount of excluded responses but I don't want to exclude the data all together from my app, just not display it in a single chart. Thanks!

Re: Suppressing dimension values within Qlik Sense

Hi Drew,

for these purposes, we use Set Analysis. It's a very wide subject to teach in forum post (I teach a 3-hour lecture on Set Analysis at the Masters Summit for Qlik, and even that is not enough...)

To give you a basic example, this is how it would look like:

Count( {<Response -= {'Value1', 'Value2', 'Value3'}>}  Response)

or

Sum( {<Response -= {'Value1', 'Value2', 'Value3'}>}  Value)

The text within the {< ... >} holds the Set Analysis condition. The operator -= is used to exclude listed values from your current selections.

You can read more about Set Analysis in the documentation, or in my new book "QlikView Your Business", or at one of the available Set Analysis classes.

cheers,
