    How to attach the most current step in a process to each record in a straight table

    Jason Feliciano

      Hello all,

      I am developing a recruiting application and am still learning about how Qlikview behaves. I created a straight table that shows some basic transaction data. The table below shows the recorded step in the recruitment process on each day. What I'd like to do is show the furthest step inn the recruitment process for a job based on every transaction up until the selected date. For example, If the user selects 3/18/2016, the most recent step should  be 'Hiring Manager Review' (based on 'Step Order' field). Here is the formula I've come up with so far:


      Furthest Step = FirstSortedValue({$<[Current Step Date]={"<=$(=$(vSelectedDate))"}>}DISTINCT [Current Step],-[Step Order])


      It doesn't work the way I was hoping. What I would like to see is the result in the last column. This assumes the user has selected 3/21/2016. It looks like the formula is only evaluating at the row level. How can I make it evaluate the records that are before the selected date?
