I am trying to reduce the number of extraneous tables that are used maintain a qlikview file to have them be maintained within a QVW. My solution thus far has been to use Inputfields within a table box to assign values and these can be maintained within a sheet in the QVW.
For instance, I have a list of Region and I'd like to assign a Regional Manager to each distinct region. Here is how the data might look:
Based on this table, what I've been able to create what I'd like to see is an inputfield for Regional Manager, which looks like this:
The trouble I'm having is if I want to find a specific Regional Manager, say Name1, I get DISTINCT values within Current Selections, Search Boxes, etc. I've been able to mitigate this somewhat in other objects by using =TEXT([Regional Manager]), however, the ability to use an expression is not always available - as in the case of Current Selection and Search Boxes.
My attempts to store the InputFields and reload them into a new field haven't been working.
Can anyone think of a solution to this? As I said, I'd really rather not use an external Excel file to maintain this information.
