NPrinting 17 - pixel perfect levels

I'm wondering if someone can explain the different use cases when one would use chart objects as levels vs. use individual fields as levels.  Is there even any difference in how you go about it?  Thanks.

Hi Kris,

First of all I would to suggest you to refer to the official PixelPerfect documentation in the help site PixelPerfect reports ‒ Qlik NPrinting.‌ There are examples of using Levels in PixelPerfect repots in both cases, with single field and with straight tables.

If you want to add a table into a PixelPerfect template you have two possibilities.

You can add the original table into the Images node. This will produce and image in the final report. Report production time is faster and recipients have no access to the original numbers, they need to manually copy them. A cons, for example, is that you cannot add calculated columns.

The second solution is to add the orginal table in the template Tables node and rebuid it into the template as showed in Creating a simple PixelPerfect report ‒ Qlik NPrinting. Report production time will be a bit slower than with images, but you have a full control of the table formats and you can add calulated column, total, subtotals etc.

You can add a single field in the Levels node for example when you wan to produce the same table but repeated once for each value of the field you added in the Levels node. For example if you want to print the same table once for each Year, you add the Year field in the Levels node and after you nested the table inside. See Creating PixelPerfect reports with a level ‒ Qlik NPrinting

In Qlik NPrinting you can create nested levles and inside a level you can place different objects, for example many images.

Best,

Ruggero

Is this is your expectation:

Add a GroupHeader band for each DetailReport and place labels in there.

Tip: RMB on selected field names to drag them in as labels

You will get output something like this

Thanks for the info but it's still a bit vague for me.  I guess I'm still left wondering when or why would one use individual fields as "Add Levels" vs the method you showed (use chart objects as levels)?  What are reasons one would use one method vs the other?  Is the difference the "sub level" concept you get with individual fields as your levels, and if so, what do you gain from that...is is more than just a formatting or "look and feel" that is achieved?  Thanks.

Thanks.  I've reread the online help and it's a bit more clear.  I think I'll have to first find out what our report requirements are and then experiment from there to achieve the right result.

First you have to add your chart object under the Image node of the NP Designer if you haven't already.  Then from there you can simply click and drag it onto your canvas.
