        • setting a field value

          I'm slightly confused by your question, but I'll try to help...why wouldn't you just edit the value for that particular account in Excel or your original data source? Is there a specific function you are trying to apply to that account (i.e. if Account = 23000 then add $500.00 to total, etc.)? Generally speaking, QlikView is an analysis platform and shouldn't really be used to alter data from a source.

          Please let me know what you think or explain your issue further...thanks!
