If I'm right in assuming you will have a long list of records (6 rows for each record), then an approach like the following will achieve what you want ...

Data:

LOAD rowno() as link, B as [Cust Id]

FROM Sample.xlsx (ooxml, no labels, table is Sheet1)

where A = 'Cust Id';

left join LOAD rowno() as link, B as [first name]

FROM Sample.xlsx (ooxml, no labels, table is Sheet1)

where A = 'first name';

left join LOAD rowno() as link, B as [last name]

FROM Sample.xlsx (ooxml, no labels, table is Sheet1)

where A = 'last name';

.. + 3 more for age, gender, phone

This will only work if you can guarantee 6 pieces of data for each record AND all data labels are consistently named otherwise the link will corrupt.

Afreen,

Apparently, you have columns with similar (same!) names in the Excel file.

QlikView will treat these as seperate columns by default on a regular load.

To get the desired result, you can Extract - Transform and Load the source (Excel) file.

Since your data has an ID which is seemingly a primary key, splitting the table load and joining them again on this field must give you the desired result

Please find attachment for the same.

Hope that helps.

Regards,

-Khaled.
