          As per my knowledge there is no book available .

          • Re: QlikView Book

            I agree with sunil's comment. No separate books available in the market for qlikview and there is no need to buy separate book for qlikview. If u want to learn Qlikview please refer the Qlikview tutorial or Qlikview reference manual.I always consider Qlikview reference manual as bible of Qlikview.U have installed Qlikview or not. If u have installed Qlikview then both the tutorial and reference manual will be available in documentation folder in qlikview programfiles.
            If u need any further reference regarding functions, please refer help page in qlikview. hope this ll help u.


            Warm Regards,

            Arun Prasadh.N.

              For more advanced features also refer to the APIGuide.qvw (installed under Documentation folder - same place as your Reference manual with a full installation).


              Also check the knowledge base for white papers which may be of help.

                Don’t be silly, of course we need books on Qlikview.  I would say that one of the weaknesses of Qlikview is the lack of good documentation on its use.  This is by no way an easy program to master.  I have bought both books;  Practial Qlikview and Hello Qlikview.  Both of these books gave me a better understanding of Qlikview and taught me something’s that I was notable to get easily from the company documentation but at the same time neither of these books showed me how to set up Sparklines.

                  There are 2 current books. "Hello Qlikview" and  "Practical qlikview", but you will be fine with the tutorial as mentioned by others. There is also a Qliktech authorised book being released in the next few months called "qlikview 11 from the inside out" (I may not have the name 100% correct)
