    Creating S Curve in Qlik Sense

      Hi all,

      actually I have created a very cool dashboard using Qlik Sense, but still I couldn't create the S Curve which is line chart displaying the planned VS actual progress for a project or multiple projects as per the selection, I am holding all the data in excel sheets, I tried many data structuring and all of them were not useful, I need your help for the data structure what is the dimensions and measures needed to draw the lines for monthly progress.

      thank you in advance,

                  thanks for sharing. I'll start with the data structure in the pivot table above. If your source data is in a similar structure you can use the CROSSTABLE load to dynamically pivot the months into a new field and the cells into a new field.  You would need to filter out the 'average planned' and 'average actual' as those are calcs that Qlik can easily calculate. Mike Tarallo's video  should help a built  Power of Qlik Script - Reshaping Data with Crosstable (video)  .


                  About the UI, you wuld use the new month field (formed by crosstable) as the 1st dimension and you would add the 2nd field (Actual vs Planned)  as the 2nd dimension.  Your data is pre-aggregated so i was thinking avg([measure]) would be your expression.


                  One more thing: Now reporting off excel is not the best data source when the data is already in a report format as above. for example cells A2 and A3 are merged and qlik may not pick up the fact that A3=planned for example.  Also, there is no column header for column B and you would have to give it a name.  All in all, its better to work with a raw tabular data set for qlik .
