    Problem with date field

      Dear all,


      I am very new to qlikview and I have a problem with regards to a date field which contains information like:


      (F11, F12, 2015 P01, ... 2015 P12, 2016 P01, ... , 2016 P12, 2015 Q1, 2015 Q2) and the list goes on,

      What would be the best way to visualize this data if I want to create a bar chart with the dates running on the x axis. The Y axis would then represent the cash revenue.


      I would also like to have the data in the x axis segmented into quarters and months in the form of (p01-p12), and a total cash revenue summed up over the year 2015.


      Attached below is a sketch as to what I would like to be represented in my bar chart. Forgive the really ugly and primitive drawing.


      Thanks so much for your input and assistance, thanks in advance.


      Kind regards,

      Royce Tang

          It might help us help you better if you can provide some real data and provide the expected output. Would you be able to provide a sample?
