Producing a formatted report - P&L / Balance Sheet

Hi Guys,

I need to produce a formatted report which displays like a classic report, with group headers, group footers going down the page, rather than across the page.

I will show you what I need to produce and then a couple of examples of what I have produced.

Below is what i need to produce:-

Current Assets
Cash
Cash At Bank and on Hand9,561,0087,738,286
Deposits on Call--
Receivables
Trade Debtors5,725,4006,209,081

Total Non-Current Assets(194,083,241)(190,251,300)
TOTAL ASSETS(177,471,310)(174,991,889)

Next, is what I have produced:

The problem with the pivot table is that the pivot (as per any 'pivot') works from left to right, across the page. You can't apply a unique identifer to the 'Total' row to identify which Total the Total refers to.

The problem with the straight table is that the group names are repeated and there is no facility to create sub-totals without scripting this in.

I've tried using 'Indent Mode' but the only way you can get it to look decent is using 'Totals on First Row' which is unacceptable.

Any suggestions are very welcome!

Thanks.

Producing a formatted report - P&L / Balance Sheet

You would need to produce mapping table in which you would need to add all the lines above and show as total line. Pretty cool trick in QV. Here is an example: http://community.qlik.com/cfs-file.ashx/__key/CommunityServer.Components.PostAttachments/00.00.07.16...

Producing a formatted report - P&L / Balance Sheet

I'm creating a balance sheet and have already got most of the way to creating something I like (along the lines of your one). i had two questions, if you have a sec to answer them...

How did you get the blank lines on the report please? also for the headers at the top of each section e.g. current assets - ho did you manage to get those?

Many thanks

If you are creating your report using an interval match, in your spreadsheet, specify header lines and blank lines with ranges. i.e.

Line TypeLine TextStartEnd
HCurrent Assets10001400
B10001400
NCash10001050
NPrepayments10501100

Then use your Line Type field to hide/ show figures (expressions). I.e. Text Colour, if LineType = 'B' OR 'H' then RGB(255,255,255) ELSE RGB(0,0,0).

Hi again Matt

thanks for the last reply - all looking good now. Just wondered if you had any tips on the set analysis for the expressions to pull out the balance this month and last?

thanks

Hi everyone,

I guess I'm trying something similar or related from what its in here. However my data model its a little bit different.

I have a big accounting map with different numeric operators for every account like +, -, *, / and even ~ which means do nothing, just show the number without aggregation for statistical measures like Headcount, Units, Average Unit Price etc.

I also need to make calulations just between accounts of the same accounting type, for example Assets and Liabilities separated from Revenue and Expenditures.

Example:

In Microsoft Analysis Services this is something pretty easy to do but in QlikView I couldn't find a way yet. This example is from the Adventure Works database and my customers database modelling is exactly the same.

Could anyone please help me on this? Its very important to me.

thanks in advance,

Hernán
