Conditionally Show/Hide Data on a table

Hi

I have created a customised 'Listbox' using :

=If(Match($Field, 'Description', 'Product Description''), $Field)

And on the table of data I only want the specific listbox selection to appear, so I have written this in the expression of each column>

Description

SubstringCount(concat( distinct $Field,'Listbox') , 'Description')>0

Product Description

SubstringCount(concat( distinct $Field,'Listbox') , 'Product Description')>0


I have several over columns and they all work fine, however the above two.  When I select 'Product Description' on the listbox, it brings back both Description & product description columns, when I select Description it works fine and displays the description column.  I believe that is because of the word Description?


Can anyone assist me here, so when I select Product Description on the listbox, I will only have that column appear.


Thank

Try this:

SubstringCount(concat(DISTINCT '|' & $Field & '|','Listbox') , '|Description|') > 0


SubstringCount(concat(DISTINCT '|' & $Field & '|','Listbox') , '|Product Description|') > 0

Remember to add | (pipes) around all expression just because its more robust way to do this to avoid issues like you just had with Description and Product Description

Hi Sunny,

Can you clarify what are | (pipes) effectively for in Qlikview? And when can use you use them.

As I'm still learning my way around.

Thanks

| is something unique which won't be available in your field values. That is why i used them, but you can anything else also such as @ or # which you think won't be in your field values. Nothing special about pipe |

Does this make sense?
