The best solution is then if you Excel is not dynamic you could probably change the whole column which has mixed values to be in text format.

This would make qlikview also to read in the same way use text(<column name>) as <column name>explanation.JPG

Hi

The script look like this

C190_Distribution_Cost:

LOAD
      1
as Month,
      'C190'
as Site,
     
[Distribution Cost],
    
F3 as Key,
    
[Month Actual],
    
[Month Budget],
    
[Month l/y],
    
[Index Budget],
    
[Index l/y],
    
[Ytd Actual],
    
[Ytd Budget],
    
[Ytd l/y],
    
[Index Budget1],
    
[Index l/y1]

FROM

(
biff, embedded labels, header is 41 lines, table is C190$)

WHERE RecNo() > 0 AND RecNo() < 25;

Hi

I tried that also. But have mixed data. So some figures sould be shown in % and other as number. So this is not the solution 😞

Jagans Excel all the cell properties are in default General category. And so the data is read in the same way.
