    Button "Select in Field" Action. Help Please!

    James Wills

      Qlik newbie.


      I would like to add a button with a "Select in Field" action. The action, upon click, should select "two" values for a given dimension.


      The dimension is




      and I would like the button click to select values 30000 & 37660.


      What would the syntax for the Search String field be please?

              You can also use the action toggle select.


              Make a button with 2 actions


              Toggle Select

              Field = ACCAccount

              Search String = 30000


              Toggle Select

              Field = ACCAccount

              Search String = 37660
