    Variable Tutorial and basic overview

      Hi All,

       

      I am looking for a resource that will serve as a foundation to understanding variables in Qlikview, when to use them, when to use Set vs Let, and how to use in formulas. I have found the below, but I was wondering if there is a better resource.

       

      In my own script I am trying to create a variable that will store certain states that if shipped from a certain DC, would be classified as "over fence" shipments

       

      My attempts that are failing:

       

      Set vDC1OverFenceState= 'CA;OR;WA;ID;NV;AZ;AK;HI;UT;MT;WY;CO;NM;TX';

      Set vDC2OverFenceState= 'ND;SD;NE;KS;OK;MN;IA;MO;AR;LA;WI;IL;KY;TN;MS;MI;IN;AL;OH;ME;NH;VT;MA;RI;CT;NY;PA;NJ;DL;WV;VA;FL;GA;SC;NC;MD;PR;VI';

       

      IF(WH='DC1' and [SHIP TO STATE]= $(vDC1OverFenceState),1,0) as N7OverFence,

      IF(WH='DC2' and [SHIP TO STATE]= $(vDC2OverFenceState),1,0) as L7OverFence,

       

      I am thinking I need to use peek somehow, but something is missing in my logic. Any assistance appreciated.
