Hide the word "(Detached)"

How do I detached a pivot table but hide the word "(Detached)" in the Caption? Note that I still want the caption for the title and minimised button.

Did the set analysis approach not work for you like the one I suggested here?

Detach a chart but not show the word 'Detached'

Not applicable

It doesn't work for what I am looking for.


What exactly are you looking to do? Can you may be give some background information. The reason I ask you this is because AFAIK, QlikView doesn't have an option to hide the word 'Detached' from its title when the chart is detacted.

One way to work around this would be to set the chart to detached but then to layer a text box object over the word detached in the title bar and set the colour of the text box to match the title bar. As Sunny said I don't know of any way to stop Qlikview displaying the word detached once a chart has been detatched.

Hope this is useful for you .




May be some thing like this,

At Show Caption -> Title Text

I don't know whyu are detached that , i guess the following points may helps you.

If you do not want any selections in the chart, instead of detached you can use Following ways :

1.Use Read Only option in General Tab

2.If u make any selection , u do not want want any reflection in your chart , thn restrict those section fields in set analysis.


Create one alternate group  and then use that group.

As others have said, there might be better ways than using the Detached option, however a workaround could be to pop the object into a container, set it to display objects as Grid, with a matrix of 1 row by 1 column and no spacing. You can then use the label you want in the container header with the minimize button available.

You lose Size to Data, though.



I think I saw someone give this suggestion (which seems to have worked) but they have removed it.


Add this to the end of your label

& Chr(10)

which should push your label 1 row down and Detacted will no longer be visible
