    Showing unassociated data

    Diwakar Nahata



      I have a tricky scenario where i have a straight table and a set of charts. In the charts i want to show the data as per the filters, but in the straight table i want to show even the non-associated data.

      For. e.g. I have a flag which selects data from data source A or B, both data sources are concatenated facts separated by a data source flag. They also have separate volume columns.

      Now, when i select the Data Source A, the charts works fine, but the straight table is expected to show both the volume columns ir-respective of the flag which is selected. So, it has to show the data which is not associated. Also, the other filters should work with the un-associated data of Source B.


      Let me know how this could be achieved in QlikView (preferably without using alternate states).

          Hi Diwakar,


          Try with advanced set analysis, use p() and E() function you can achieve this requirement

              to add little more details

              Indirect Set Analysis

              • p( ) = Possible

              • e( ) = Excluded



              Customer = p({<Year={$(=max(Year)-1)}>} Customer)

              Returns customers who had an association to last year.


              Customer = p({<Year={$(=max(Year)-1)} Customer>}) Sales)

              Returns this year’s sales for customers who had sales last year.


              sum({$<CompanyName = p({$<CategoryName={'Baby Clothes'}>}

              CompanyName)>} Sales)

              Sales for Customers who purchased Baby Clothes.

              The set p({}) returns the values of CompanyName (Customer) that

              purchased Baby Clothes.

              sum({$<CompanyName = p({$<CategoryName={'Baby Clothes'}>}

              CompanyName) - p({$<CategoryName={'SportsWear'}>}

              CompanyName)>} Sales)

              Sales for Customers who purchased Baby Clothes but not

              Sportswear.The first set p({}) returns CompanyName that purchased

              Baby Clothes.The second set p({}) returns CompanyName that

              Purchased SportsWear.The Unary Operator "-" between the two gives

              a list of Customers (CompanyName)that belong to the first but not the

              other set.
