Import csv into qlikview


i'm trying to import in qlik the excel file attached with the qvw file attached as well.

the issue is that numbers on the CSV file are with " " quote, and qlikview sometimes is not able to get the amount, i dont know why.

For exmaple the sum of ExtendedCostUSDADJ for 06/09/2018 field have to be 6451,224 but i got only 2586,44 since one line is ignored and read as text

Can anyone please help?

Try with

Num#(CostDailyDeltaUSD,'#,##',',','.') as ExtendedCostUSDADJ,



Re: Import csv into qlikview

Try below

Your numbers or dates are coming into Excel formatted as Text.

To convert in Excel, click column A and change the format to Short Date/Number.

Then select Data|Text to columns and click Finish

Instead of using Send to Excel:

     If you are using the IE PlugIn, you can right-click and choose Copy to Clipboard|Full Table. Then paste into Excel


     Right-Click and Export to csv. Then open in Excel

Re: Import csv into qlikview

It worked but you had different settings then?? I'm away from qv install right now, so unable to check. Could you try with

Num(Num#(CostDailyDeltaUSD,'#,##',',','.')) as ExtendedCostUSDADJ,
