Week Starting on Sunday

Hi All,

I'm having difficulty with a report I'm putting together, which is looking at volumes by week (in my straight table, I have multiple expressions - week, week+1 etc).

My issue is that the Qlikview default week is Monday-Sunday, and I need the weeks to be Sunday-Saturday (for everything within this report).

For example, if I select 2013, week 10 in my calendar, I would want to see the volumes for 3rd - 9th March.

I have looked through the forums for solutions, but I can't find a solution that will work for me (one that is simple enough for a beginner like me to understand, at least!).

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Re: Week Starting on Sunday

Hi Vivien,

Thanks for your quick response!

Possibly a stupid question - does that go in the script where I create my calendar?

Re: Week Starting on Sunday

Ya. In your script. This calculation is the cleanest way to tell QlikView your week start on sunday.
