i would like to create new dimension through the master item.
the new dimension is suppose to present the month and the year of another full date field that is already existing in the data set.
what is the function that i should write in order to receive such a value?
Go to Solution.
MonthName(Date) will return 'MMM YYYY' eg. Mar 2016
Add these lines to your load script setting the correct filed name for date_field
month(date_field) as month,
year(date_field) as year,
For Month you need Month() and for year you can use Year(). There are other Date and Time related functions which you can find in the help section. One thing to make sure before you use these functions is that the date is read correctly by QlikView
Why don’t my dates work?
Get the Dates Right
Try below code in scripting
Month(datefield) as Month,
Year(datefield) as Year
