Is there a quick way to promote a collumn in a table box

I have a Qlikview dashboard with several wide table boxes in it.

I needed to add an extra identifier column to the tables and show it in the table boxes.

Adding the new field ended up after the last column, so I needed to press the promote button over 40 times to advance the new column to the front of the list.

Is there a quicker way to do this?

The button seems not repeating while I keep it depressed.

Goodmorning Paul,

If you activate the table, you can drag the column. But as far as I know, not possible with 'properties'.

Also thanks to: How do I promote and demote fields in a Tablebox quickly?


Paul, I don't think so there is way to promote very fast. I never found before, The only one possible is try to move that dimension / expression by hand from UI. Hope this helps

Before develop something, think If placed (The Right information | To the right people | At the Right time | In the Right place | With the Right context)

You can simply drag and drop where u want promote in a table, click mouse on field name and move.
