Qlikview Beginner - Please help...

Hi all,

I hope everyone is well.

I have a problem that I am hoping someone can help me with.

What I want to do is take a file for a month, say August 11 (1st - 31st) and from here arrange/sort the data by the bill value (£) - this would be my 100% data file.  I then want to remove the bottom 5% and top 5%, giving me a 90% data file.  I then need to replicate this from the 100% file, but removing the bottom 10% and top 10%, giving me an 80% file.  Is there a way I can do this in Qlikview - I'm guessing it is something to do with ranking, but would not know how to code this, assuming I am even correct!

I have attached a file to try and demonstrate what I need to do, but let me know if you need any further information.

Thank you in advance for taking the time to help.

Simon

Possible solution attached (hopefully).

This uses the script to make the reduction, I've created a variable in the front-end that lets you select the % of the rows you wish to remove.

Seems to work for me, sure you'll be able to adapt it to fit your needs.

Hope that helps,

Thanks for getting back to me Matt - I have managed to get it to work in the spreadsheet - now I have the task of getting it to work in my main report!

Thanks again

One more thing, do I need to load the data for my main report (the excel document was just as an example) in ascending order by £value?

Thanks
