Hi Tresesco B,
I see your point, however last time i tried to do that it took me half a day to setup a sample qvw to demonstrate my issue...
I'm pulling Data out of an ODBC database and my table model for any one report includes multiple tables so I have to make signifcant changes to my script in order for the qvw to work...
Having said that, once i invested the time someone did get back to me with an answer that resolved the issue... so based on that experience I keep that as a last resort, considering how time-consuming that exercise was.
The fact is that there must be an easier way than what I did last time but probably that I'm too new to Qlikview to understand how to generate a sample quickly...
hopefully someone can help me based on the information provided.
Any help is appreciated anyways... just figuring out one problem at a time...
thanks for your comment anyway.
I see your point, this is the first time I'm using the master calendar and the variables defining calendar ranges...
I have looked at the link you sent and a few others in the knowledgebase but still cannot understand how to resolve this issue...
however my variables are picking up a numeric format as per my previous screenshot:
How do I go about changing my script so that varMinDate and varMaxDate retain the Date formatting?
Having said that, these variables are set as part of the master calendar script, which I found in a qlikview tutorial.
Should I be creating new variables within the document (not script) for my calendar/slider objects? I have also tried to do this but haven't been able to get it to work yet... the new variables also seem to convert the field in a numerical format.
hope this makes sense...
thanks in advance for your help...
I was able to resolve my query by eliminating the master calendar and using variables with triggers as per this video:
Thanks to all for your contribution
