Yearly Target values not mapped to Fact table

Hello,

I am trying to link yearly targets to the main data set in QlikView. The issue is that - In the 1st picture, you can see that the sum of target for Name=A for 2018 is 6. However, in the main data set (picture 2) there is no Code for Plant =A & Group = S, M. Hence, the respective targets are not considered in QlikView. 

I found 2 solutions on community:

1. Concatenate : This doesn't work because the actual date is connected to the calendar,  whereas the targets are on yearly basis

2. Add Dummy data: It is not possible for me to add dummy data based on missing Codes because it is dynamic

Any other idea how I can make this work? Attaching a Sample QVW.

Hi,

I tried "Join", it still isn't picking up all the target values. I have attached a sample QVW in my question for your reference.

Thank you.
