I have been following some threads on here on importing data into Qlik, and so far it is great (am new to all of this.)
However, I have come up against something I'm not sure how to do, so was hoping someone can help..
When importing the data, it is coming from excel - the text in question has some text in brackets at the end of the cell e.g.
what I'm trying to achieve is when I import data, it drops the brackets, so I will only get Testing123 - I know this is possible in excel, but I am trying to avoid manipulating the data in excel, as there are other things going on with it, so am trying to do it on import.
I will keep looking, but if anyone can help, I would appreciate it.
just letting you know that I have found a way that works for me - and the way that my data is - if anybody knows of a better way then I am happy to look at it, but thought I would just pop this on there.
Trim(SubField(Field,'(',1)) as SalesRep,
The above works, but as mentioned, with my data.
@M Woolf - your answer just popped in as I was typing this - many thanks, I shall try that now.
