    Create a Bar for the Average

    Alan Farrell

      Hi All,


      I am looking to do something similar to this in Qlikview




      I have tried using an Expression and playing with the Dimension Limits, but I can't get the look that I need.


      Has anyone created anything similar

          You must compute average value in the script, then it automatically displays as you need

            You could use something like the following script, use Country.DimOrder in your (set) expression to control what to display and how to format it.

              Why would you not put the global average on as a line rather than a bar, that way it would be easy?


              Could you achieve something like this by creating a table linking into your data model, with a global average field linking to all values?



              LOAD DISTINCT


                   Country as [Global Average Country]

              RESIDENT ExistingTable;



              LOAD DISTINCT


                   'Global Average' as [Global Average Country]

              RESIDENT ExistingTable;

              This way each country would exist in the table linking to itself, and then again linking to the average.


              All you should then need to do is change your dimension from Country to Global Average Country.


              I've not given it a try - but I don't see why this wouldn't achieve what you are after.

                You can do it with a valuelist() function (synthetic dimension).  The chart itself is not select-able, but the chart is fully dynamic and responds to any other selections.  Also a good example of using colormix wizard.
