Problem with rounding off page 67 (Tutorial)

Hello,

Im following the Qlikview tutorial atm which is great fun but im stumbled on this little problem. On page 67 it says you need to round off the total sales per country. I follow all the steps till 5 and click OK but it keeps adding 3 decimals.

For example: Japan: 240,781 and U.S.A: 202,455

What i want is what the tutorial tells me to, rounding off so the numbers come up as thousands like 241 and 202 on top of my bars.

I hope someone can give me a few hints on how to resolve this problem. Following the instructions doesnt give me the right result.

I have no idea on the manual, but have you tried an expression like

`ROUND(MyValue / 1000)`

Hi,

I cant find the right Page in the Manual which manual do you use?

Can you post the Formula?

The right formula for ronding to thousands is round(<Value>,1000)

Have Fun

I'm using a manual/tutorial for my Language (Dutch) so it might be slightly different.

The English version is viewable @ http://www.qlik.com/uploadedImages/Tutorial.pdf

Check out page 67 under Changing the number format. I dont have to do anything with formulas there.

The thing is, I havent used formulas so far since Im still in the learning phase and just following the tutorial (chapter with barcharts and piecharts.)

So when i follow the 6 instructions to change the number format, the bar graph still shows the total sales per country with 3 decimals.

I also noticed, when you set your fixed decimals to 0 and click apply or OK it resets the box to nothing (empty).

I hope someone could give me a hint to fix this without using formulas since its not required by the tutorial.

OhOoh,

Have Fun
