Time Line Chart questions

Hi All,

I have a quick question: how to create a time line chart in Qlikview.

I have 2 column : Phone and Released date

iphone , 2/2/2010

droid , 2/10/2010

etc, 11/2/2011

I need to show the time line with the date on the X axis and the phone name  shown on the chart  and not shown as legend.

It similar to the time line project.

Regards,

Senjaya

Re: Time Line Chart questions

Hi there,

What I would suggest is that you add a counter to each row of that dataset - you will also need to ensure your dates are formatted correctly.  This inline statement should give an idea:

TimeLine:

LOAD

          1 as PhoneCount,

          Phone,

          date(date#(Date, 'DD MMM YYYY'), 'DD MMM YYYY') as Date

INLINE [

Phone,Date

iPhone,1 Jan 2011

Android,24 Mar 2011

];

With the data in this format you can create a combo chart.  Set the Date as the dimension for the chart.  Set the first Expression to be sum(PhoneCount) and select that to be a symbol.  Put a second Expression in simply of Phone - set this to be Values On Data Points.  You will also want to check that you have a Continuous axis.

This should give you something to start with, I would sugest you want to also want to play about with the formatting.  The attached .qvw file should give some ideas.

Hope that helps.

Regards,
Steve
