If your question is "Why do we use quarters" then the answer is that many financial transactions work in Quarterly 'bands' for accountancy reasons.

The Master Calender Quarter idiom works to facilitate that working practice, not the other way around.

Hi Venu,

Master calendar :- Where every date exists (as you said).

Quarter : Where we can see the data of specific period of a year.  we have 4 qts in a year and if company( e.g Finance related )wants to see the data  from Apr to Mar then we can specify the Quarters according to that in QV.

This function is mostly used to compare the data of companies for specific time frame e.g comparison  of Q1 sales vs Q2 sales etc. Hope it clears .

In businesses, high-level financial reporting and follow-up is almost always done using Quarterly results. Of course, that depends on which hierarchical level is using QlikView (operational follow-up may be done on daily, weekly or monthly basis).

Therefore BI quite often needs a quarter dimension in its chart timeline.
