    New to QlikView - join problem

      I am currently evaluating QlikView.


      I have built a fairly simple demo application that extracts data from a 3rd party time management system and presents information about time spent on projects and supporting applications. I would like to show which projects have been undertaken for each application. Unfortunately I am working with a 3rd party database that does not provide a link between projects and applications.


      For the purpose of the demo application I thought I would create an Excel worksheet that linked each project to an application. However when I load this into QlikView I receive a warning about looping and advice that one of the tables will be loosely coupled which may cause unpredictable results.


      I do not understand why this is happening as the additional data is just a simple link table between 2 other tables in the schema.


      Any ideas how I can get round this?
