Select null values

This is simply the second biggest source of frustration on Qlik : I cannot select null in a chart and the turnaround is a pure nightmare.

Why? You can explain Null is not a value (which is true, ok) but the other products (wink, wink) allow Null selection.

I was reading the help : it's complete but shows mainly the complexity of the thing :

There are two workarounds though...

1) this is for a single field in the load script: https://community.qlik.com/t5/QlikView-Scripting/How-to-replace-Null-by-a-string-value/td-p/455729

2) this is for all null values in the load script: https://help.qlik.com/en-US/sense/June2019/Subsystems/Hub/Content/Sense_Hub/Scripting/ScriptRegularS...

Hello Bart,

As  mentioned in my previous comment, I would say that if we have to use workarounds, it means that the product can be improved with more user-friendly, intuitive and default solution. The idea behind Qlik Sense is the self-service analytics and this kind of behaviour makes it complicated.

Best regards,

Simon
