It really depends on what you would like to do.

You could start with the free training QlikView provides.

Build your first QlikView is a good start. The QlikView Tutorial is also a decent. See the link below for both trainings.

Hi Jakob

Thanks for the reply.

I want to learn the Reporting part of the Qlikview. How to use it to develop the reports and a user interface dashboard?

I would not recommend using QlikView as a reporting tool. In my opinion, that's just not what it is desgined for. QV is great for an online ad-hoc analysis dashboard

In addition to Jacob's recommendation you can also download a free version of QlikView  with a  the Personal Edition licence. This enables you to play with the software at no cost.

QlikView's rapid deployment and delivery enables businesses to visually present information quickly and in a meaningful way. This can assist in identifying trends, provide comparative analysis, locating both associations and gaps in the data, and drill through the data for deeper analytical investigation.

As a reporting tool it is OK, certainly no better than it's competitors. But what gives it the edge is the ability to interact with the charts and change views.

With the free download you can have a good play.

I have used some of the competitors products. And IMHO Qlikview is a much better reporting tool. But I have mostly been a user of reports ie I have used various options to develop reports because the built in options or computer division developed reports have been very poor
