Calendar/Slider object with Master Calendar not filtering data

Hi all,

i am creating a report that needs to be filtered by min date / max date based on a field SBISOEnterDate.

I have created the master calendar, and the min/max variables seem to be working but i am not getting any filtering on my results...

anyone have any ideas to offer? Thanks in advance!! Fab...

Here are some screen shots:

MaxSOEnterDate.JPG

MinSOEnterDate.JPG

Script is as follows:

QuartersMap:

MAPPING LOAD * Inline [

Month, Q

1, Q3

2, Q3

3, Q3

4, Q4

5, Q4

6, Q4

7, Q1

8, Q1

9, Q1

10, Q2

11, Q2

12, Q2

];

Temp: 

Load 

               min(SBISOEnterDate) as minDate, 

               max(SBISOEnterDate) as maxDate 

Resident SBISOrder; 

 

Let varMinDate = Num(Peek('minDate', 0, 'Temp')); 

Let varMaxDate = Num(Peek('maxDate', 0, 'Temp')); 

DROP Table Temp; 

 

TempCalendar: 

LOAD 

               $(varMinDate) + Iterno()-1 As Num, 

               Date($(varMinDate) + IterNo() - 1) as TempDate 

               AutoGenerate 1 While $(varMinDate) + IterNo() -1 <= $(varMaxDate); 

 

MasterCalendar: 

Load 

               TempDate AS SBISOEnterDate, 

               week(TempDate) As Week, 

               Year(TempDate) As Year, 

               Month(TempDate) As Month, 

               Day(TempDate) As Day, 

               YeartoDate(TempDate)*-1 as CurYTDFlag, 

               YeartoDate(TempDate,-1)*-1 as LastYTDFlag, 

               inyear(TempDate, Monthstart($(varMaxDate)),-1) as RC12, 

               date(monthstart(TempDate), 'MMM-YYYY') as MonthYear, 

               ApplyMap('QuartersMap', month(TempDate), Null()) as Quarter, 

               Week(weekstart(TempDate)) & '-' & WeekYear(TempDate) as WeekYear, 

               WeekDay(TempDate) as WeekDay 

Resident TempCalendar 

Order By TempDate ASC; 

Drop Table TempCalendar;

Hi all,

I was able to resolve my query by eliminating the master calendar and using variables with triggers as per this video:

Selecting Arbitrary Date Ranges - YouTube

Thanks to all for your contribution

A representative sample qvw would have been a better choice to help us help you.

The variable dates should be in the same format as your field format

Hi Tresesco B,

I see your point, however last time i tried to do that it took me half a day to setup a sample qvw to demonstrate my issue...

I'm pulling Data out of an ODBC database and my table model for any one report includes multiple tables so I have to make signifcant changes to my script in order for the qvw to work...

Having said that, once i invested the time someone did get back to me with an answer that resolved the issue... so based on that experience I keep that as a last resort, considering how time-consuming that exercise was. 

The fact is that there must be an easier way than what I did last time  but probably that I'm too new to Qlikview to understand how to generate a sample quickly...

hopefully someone can help me based on the information provided.

Any help is appreciated anyways... just figuring out one problem at a time...

thanks for your comment anyway.

Cheers Fab

Thanks Vineeth,

I see your point, this is the first time I'm using the master calendar and the variables defining calendar ranges...

I have looked at the link you sent and a few others in the knowledgebase but still cannot understand how to resolve this issue...

In my Data source, the field appears to be the correct Date format (DD/MM/YYYY)mastercalendartablepreview.JPG

however my variables are picking up a numeric format as per my previous screenshot:

Variables.JPG

How do I go about changing my script so that varMinDate and varMaxDate retain the Date formatting?

Having said that, these variables are set as part of the master calendar script, which I found in a qlikview tutorial.

Should I be creating new variables within the document (not script) for my calendar/slider objects? I have also tried to do this but haven't been able to get it to work yet... the new variables also seem to convert the field in a numerical format.

hope this makes sense...

thanks in advance for your help...

Thanks for posting this link Fabrizio, my calendar object wasn't filtering because I hadn't added a trigger.  It's working now.  Thanks again.  Kathleen
