Grouped chart with multiple dimensions


I am trying to put together a simple bar chart with 3 or more dimensions, each time I do it it always makes it a stacked graph.  Can anyone advise if this can be done?  Within the style tab 'grouped' is marked but the graph is still stacked!

Thank you.

Hi Sara

From QlikView Reference Manual (page 641):

A maximum of two dimensions can be shown on the x-axis.

l A third dimension can be shown with multicolored stacked bars.

l Only table charts can display more than three dimensions.

l When two or more expressions are enabled, the two first dimensions are shown on

the x-axis and the expression with multicolored stacked bars.

I hope this answers your question.

What you're seeing is grouped and stacked. You can't use more than three dimensions in a bar chart. If you use more than one expression the maximum becomes two dimensions.

talk is cheap, supply exceeds demand


qlikview only support to dimensions in grouped mode

you can use a pivot table as a chart see attach example

the only thing it means your chart will always be vertical
