What does QlikView actually do?

-Search through your data very quickly, explore your data easily which can help you make decisions or may just confirm what you thought.

QlikView is part of a category of software called 'Business Intelligence'.
This is not to say that it cannot be used by people in their everyday lives.
This book will cover examples of how you can use QlikView at home or in business.

-Explain how to get data into a QlikView document from a variety of sources such as Excel, text files and databases.

Once you have covered the basics what do you do then?

1.0 out of 5 stars Examples are essential but useless! 5 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The book itself looks pretty good but the problem is that it relies on worked examples from a Microsoft site and when you follow the links to the data you're supposed to manipulate it is no longer there. You can still get to the data by going to [...] which I eventually found but then I hit a step in the example that required you to 'select the text file you created with the years on each line'. Unless this earlier step is cunningly hidden in an Easter Egg there were no instructions on how do create this in the right way.

I created a text file along the lines I thought and continued to persevere but soon encountered more random and disjointed instructions which just confused the hell out of me and so at this point I gave up on the book completely.

If anyone wants a cheap copy let me know!

2.0 out of 5 stars A Basic and Elementary Introduction to QlikView 26 May 2012
By Backbutton - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Revised Review:

An introduction to QlikView for the novice. If you want just an intro to the topic, it is OK, but need to refer to other documents for more in depth understanding of QlikView.
