Filter on a table

Hi

How do we filter on a dimension in a table, do we add a calculated dimension?

I have added a conditional dimension - Flag = 'Y' and the field Flag is displayed in the table as -1.

Is this the right way to filter the dimensional data in a table?

You can use calculated dimension, but you can also use set analysis... I am not sure what your condition is... but it could be like this

Sum({<Flag = {'Y'}>}Measure)

Calculated dimension should be Match(Flag, 'Y') an suppress null dimension level or use set analysis

Sum({<Flag = {'Y'} >} Sales)

I have lot of measures in the table, I know we can use the above, but is there a way to use a dimesion as a filter?

May be this

If(Flag = 'Y', Dimension)

and then check 'Suppress When Value Is Null' on the dimensions tab

You can use this as well as calculated dimension

If(Match( Flag ,'Y' ) = 1, Dimension)



But Suppress when value null to be slected

If you have lot of measures then you need to give some time and add the set analysis Flag in all the measures (as set analysis is always better). Calculated dimension is the option but it is not advisable as it impacts on performance.

or another option is to provide the filter from which user can select the value 'Y'

WHen I do a Match, it adds a column and displays 1 and 0, 1 for a match.

How do I remove this column, is there a way to hide it?

Are there no options in Qlik to set filter to a table without displaying it?

As i suggest, Your expression needed this?

If(Match(Flag, 'Y'), Flag) and suppress from dimension level. I tested and it's working
