Highlighting a row in a Pivot Table

Highlighting a row in a Pivot Table

Customer wanted to see the whole Pivottable when selecting a salesperson. This was easy to do with help of set analyses. Also the salesperson selected should be highlighted (the whole row). I managed this with the formatting function in the dimension and all the expression. See the result below:


This looks nice, when Lana is selected and also with other salespersons. The problem, which I could not solve and ask for help now, is when Jack is selected. See the picture below. Not only the row is highlighted in bold, but also all the column headers are in bold now!?!


As I'm just a beginner with qlikview I tried several hours to find a solution - but seems I'm blocked now. I have no idea.

Would be nice if somebody out there could help me.

Hi Burkhard,

This is happening because Jack is the first record in your pivot table. If you sort your salesman in a different order, on selecting the salesman name which is appearing as the first record in pivot table, the column headers would also turn bold.

I guess this is a bug in QV
