QvM - Advanced Data Discovery

QvM - Advanced Data Discovery

"How to discover your data in a fast dynamic way?"

When starting a new project the first thing I want to do is get a feel for the data. Preferably in a fast and dynamic way. You can use the "Advanced Data Discovery module" to tackle this problem. The Advanced Data Discovery module consists out of 4 dynamic list boxes and a dynamic table which comes in handy when modeling a project, checking data quality, testing the interaction between fields or exploring your data.

  • Useful to check interaction between fields while creating your data model
  • Dynamic Data Discovery
  • Field statistics based on current selections or based on the complete set
  • Fast data quality checks
  • Dynamic list box


  • A script reload is required

PS: Special thanks to the creator of the first version of the dynamic list box from who I could not trace back the blog post I encountered 3 years ago.

The Advanced Data Discovery module is now part of the QvM - Qlikview Modules template.

Thanks for your feedback and comments.

Have fun Qlik'n, Koen

I would really like to see 'Wizards' that would help with creating and better understanding Set Analysis expressions. Set Analysis is a very powerful tool, but for those who aren't hard core users have trouble understanding how to best write and use these expressions. With the amount of data in Qlikview we have to load, it can take quite sometime for reloads.
