Sure, there are quite a bunch! Take a look at the following sample code, based on the "DateField" field that stores values like "06/09/2012" in the form "DD/MM/YYYY":
Calendar: LOAD DateField AS CompleteDate, Month(DateField) AS MonthField, Year(DateField) AS YearField, Day(DateField) AS DayField FROM File.qvd (qvd);
Hope that helps.
(Forgive me but I just started using Qlikview)
So I pasted what you wrote into Edid Script and replaced DataField with the name of one of the date fields within a table I'm working on. So I get something that looks like this:
LOAD PlacedDate AS CompleteDate,
Month(PlacedDate) AS MonthField,
Year(PlacedDate) AS YearField,
Day(PlacedDate) AS DayField
FROM File.qvd (qvd);
It fails when I hit Reload so I'm assuming that this script alone won't create the qvd file? If so, how would I create one?
