Using the Concat() function to store multiple field values in a single cell


The information in orders and invoices is typically stored at the header or line level in the database. However, when we display the sales value for a particular order on the UI, it is sometimes desired that all the products for an order are displayed in a single cell rather than on a separate line. The Concat() function is helpful in such a case.

Getting ready

For this recipe, we will make use of an inline data load that gives sales information for orders. Load the following order line information in Qlik Sense:

Orders: 
LOAD * INLINE [  
OrderID,Product, ProductID, Sales  
101,Footwear, F21Lon, 120000 
101,Tyres, T21Man, 150000  
101,Mountain Bikes, MB32Lon, 195000  
102,Road Bikes, RB12Bir, 225000  
102,Chains, F21Lon, 140000 
103,lubricant, T21Man, 56869  
103,Mountain Bikes, MB32Lon, 195000
