Discussion Board for collaboration on QlikView Scripting.
What language is used to write QV Edit Script? It seems to be a mix of different languages.
Is it a unique QV language? If yes, is there a documentation?
Thanks for the clarification

Interesting question, I have never asked this to myself. And when I did, I had multiple answers.
Yes, this is QV unique scripting language, the functions and syntax will not be used with any other language. Though you can add macros to it using VB script or Jscript.
It is mix of SQL, some standard functions and qlikview functions. The Qlikview reference manual and community can help you learn more.
You can start with reading QV 11 Developers book and also Qlikview Scripting book by Matt
Well, I know it accepts other languages syntaxes, as you said, VBScript, JScript and SQL. But in itself, which language is that? Is it related to AQL?
I would prefer to name it as 'Qlikview Scripting'. The language used by Qlikview BI tool to help in creating BI solutions and performing the ETL + data warehousing.
But is there a specific reason to find one name for this language? I mean do you have to document it somewhere or learn it independently.
Hope this was helpful.
Well, I am learning QV all by my self, and this would be an useful information. Nothing too critical.
I just got a bit confused by the many languages used in QV.
Thanks by the way
