count based on 2 joined date fields where 1 is blank
I keep encountering an issue in Qlikview where I am unable to count the number of blank fields when the 2 fields I am comparing are joined in Qlikview and not both on the same spreadsheet.
Basically I have 2 date fields that I am comparing in Qlikview. Each date field is held separately in 2 spreadsheets which are joined together by an order reference and item.
What I am trying to achieve is a count of the Receipt Date where the receipt date is blank. So in the case I'm showing below, I would like to have a count of 2.
Date Order Raised
Previously, when I loaded in all the data from one spreadsheet I was able to count the blank rows of the corresponding Receipt date in the load script, however this time round because I am joining both tables together I can't do a count on the blank fields as Qlikview will tell me that there are no blank fields in the column (Which makes sense as the column won't have any blanks, the blanks occur when i compare both dates in Qlikview)
Does anyone have any ideas around how I can solve this please? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your help but it didn't work unfortunately, i think the statements above are counting the null values.
In this case I don't think I'm importing blank cells, I think the issue is that I'm trying to compare the 2 dates based on a field called order reference.
What i found is that if i import the data from 1 spreadsheet then i can count the NULLs and the answer would be correct. Because this time I'm joining in 2 tables which don't have nulls, counting nulls wont work. The nulls are created when i compare the 2 fields against each other
