Hiding some columns in a chart but showing others of the same dimension

Good morning Qlik Community,

I want to combine current fiscal year actuals( 1st 7 fiscal periods) and remaining periods as bgt (periods 8-12).  Also the totals and %'s and difference columns out to the right.  What I want the output to look like is in the paste below.  Attached is the qvw with the details(Act/Fcst tab).  If anyone could help it would be much appreciated.

I got the hiding of columns to work by adding some text to the load script.  In my actuals table I added

if(trans_date < '12/1/2019',1,0) as hide_amount,


'act' as act_bgt,

In the budget tables I have 12 of them, 1 for each period.  I added

'bgt' as act_bgt,
'0' as hide_amount,  //for periods 1-8 and '1' as hide_amount for periods 9-12.


Then in Set Analysis my expression is Sum({<FiscalYear ={2019}, hide_amount={1}>}dom_amount).  


This was able to get me the columns that I need but I need to change '0' and '1' in 2 of  the bgt tables each month and the if(trans_date < '12/1/2019',1,0) to '1/1/2020',.  What I am struggling with now is get the 12 month Budget total to show, if I don't want the detail by period to show?

Have a look at the following Design Blog post, not exactly the same as what you are doing, but I am hopeful it may help:


The only other thing I think would be to use Set Analysis to get your total... There are quite a few Design Blog posts on Set Analysis items, here is the base URL for future reference, you can use that to search etc.


Sorry I do not have something better for you.
