Introduction to Qlik script

Qlik script is a scripting language used in Qlik Sense and QlikView for loading and transforming data from various sources into Qlik’s associative data model. It is a powerful and flexible scripting language that allows users to extract, transform, and load data from various sources, such as databases, spreadsheets, and flat files, and then prepare that data for analysis.

Qlik script is like SQL in terms of syntax and structure, but it includes additional features and functions that make it more powerful and flexible. With Qlik script, users can perform complex data transformations, create calculated fields, generate variables, and apply filters to data. The script can be used to define data models, specify data sources, and load data from them, and define data transformations. The data manager that we used in the previous section generates Qlik script in the background, and all operations done using the data manager can be done using scripting...
